There are 57 specimens in various museum collections according to FishBase. For the full list visit their website: https://www.fishbase.org/museum/OccurrencesList.php?genus=Haplochromis&species=retrodens

It is unlikely that there are any unrecognized specimens as this is/was a monotypic genus, and it is therefore quite distinct from even its closest recently living relative.
