Zoogoneticus – Taxon details on Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS).

Zoogoneticus is a genus of splitfins that are endemic to the Lerma–Chapala–Grande de Santiago, Armería, Ameca, Cuitzeo and Zacapu basins in west-central Mexico. They inhabit lakes, streams, ponds, canals and ditches, and prefer shallow waters with no or only a moderate current. They are predators that feed on small invertebrates. Zoogoneticus are fairly small fish, reaching up to 8 cm (3 in) in total length.[2]

There are currently three recognized species in this genus:[2]

Zoogoneticus purhepechus Domínguez-Domínguez, Pérez-Rodríguez & Doadrio, 2008
Zoogoneticus quitzeoensis (B. A. Bean, 1898) (Picotee goodeid)
Zoogoneticus tequila Webb & R. R. Miller, 1998 (Tequila splitfin)
