    Robert John Lechmere Guppy
    discoverd this tiny fish in trinidad in 1866,and the fish was named Girardinus guppii in his honour by albert C.L.G Günther later that year.However,the fish had previously been describeb in America.Although Girardinus guppii is now considered a junior synonym of peocelia reticulata,the common name “guppy” still remains.

    Over time guppies have been given a variety of taxonomic names,although poecillia reticulata is the name currently considered to be valid..
