POESER, FRED. N. 1992. Re-establishment and redescription of Poecilia vandepolli Van Lidth de Jeude, 1887 (Pisces: Poeciliinae), with comments on related species. Stud. Nat. Hist. Caribbean Region 71, Amsterdam 1992: 79-98. Poecilia vandepolli Van Lidth de Jeude, 1887 is re-examined and resurrected from synonymy as the Antillian representative of P. sphenops Valenciennes, 1846. Comparisons of gonopodia, colour patterns, meristic and morphometric data are made with Poecilia sphenops Valenciennes, 1846, P. mexicana mexicana Steindachner 1863, and P. mexicana cuneata Garman, 1895. Subspecific status for P. mexicana limantouri Jordan & Snyder, 1900 is rejected. Notes on aberrant male phenotypes in related species are included.
