We consider a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime. At first we show that a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime can be taken as a model of the perfect fluid spacetime in general relativity and cosmology. Next we show that if in a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime the matter distribution is perfect fluid whose velocity vector is the vector field corresponding to 1-form B of the spacetime, the energy density and the isotropic pressure are not constants. We also show that a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime is the Robertson-Walker spacetime. Finally we give an example of a conformally flat almost pseudo-Ricci symmetric spacetime with non-zero non-constant scalar curvature admitting a concircular vector field.
