The gonopodium is not always symmetrical and structures typically reported for taxonomy (e.g., number of serrae, length of distal and proximal hooks, and number of segments) sometimes are not present on the opposite side (Figs.
These armaments on the distal end of the gonopodium, coupled with other meristic and morphometric measurements (e.g., number of serrae, gonopodial length) not only are pertinent for taxonomic classifications, especially in describing new species and reorganizing phylogenies of poeciliids but also for studies of sexual selection, sexual conflict, reproductive isolation, speciation, and rapid and divergent evolution of genitalia.
