Name History   •Valid as Mollienisia dominicensis (Evermann & Clark 1906) -- (Trewavas 1948:410 [ref. 13077]). •Rivas 1978 [ref. 8887] restored the genus Limia as valid and treated it as separate from Poecilia, so he recognized Poecilia dominicensis (Evermann & Clark) and Limia dominicensis (Valenciennes) as valid species based on Art. 59. •Wrongly treated as a synonym of Limia dominicensis (Valenciennes 1846) -- (Lucinda in Reis et al. 2003:563 [ref. 27061]). •Treated as a valid species in Poecilia if the genus Limia is valid -- (Rodriguez 1997:673 [ref. 23266], Meyer & Radda 2000:75 [ref. 25029], Meyer et al. 2002:50 [ref. 26721], Poeser 2003:150 [ref. 26783], Palacios et al. 2016:232 [ref. 34629] in subgenus Psychropoecilia). •Synonym of Poecilia montana Rosen & Bailey 1963 -- (Parenti et al. 1999:14 [ref. 24072], Huber 2019:98 [ref. 36941]).
