The guppy was discovered by three scientists. The first person was De Philip who was from Spain, and he named it guppy Rebisutesu Poekiroidesu.
The second was Rekumea Guppy, who was a botanist in Britain. At the time, the guppy was named the Di Nardi Taunus guppy after him.
The final was Hell Peteruzu, who was an ichthyologist from Germany, and he named it Poekiria reticulata.
After that, Regan, who was from Britain, gave it the name, Rebisutesu reticulata. But Rebisutesu genus was incorporated into Poekiria genus, so the scientific name became Poekiria reticulata.
