Note: Status categories are not official Mexican government designations, but are based (with some updates) on Domingúez-Domingúez, O., N. Mercado-Silva, and J. Lyons. 2005. Conservation status of Mexican goodeids: Problems, perspectives, and solutions. In press, Proceedings of the International Livebearer Conference, and De La Vega-Salazar, M. Y., E. Avila-Luna, and C. Macías-Garcia. 2003. Ecological evaluation of local extinction: the case of two genera of endemic Mexican fish, Zoogoneticus and Skiffia. Biodiversity and Conservation 12:2043-2056. Species with an asterisk have large amounts of morphological and/or genetic diversity and have distinctive populations worthy of captive maintenance.
