Type of Killifish

I just got some new Killifish but I'm not sure what type they are! (And neither were the guys at the LFS, since the guy who ordered them wasn't currently in)

Any ideas? The internet isn't proving very helpful!

That's the same type that the golden wonder killifish are too, huh? They had some of those in the store as well, and they cost the same. They looked somewhat similar (well identical as far as I can remember in body). Their coloration is just different, mainly the striping. Thanks for the help! I'll look more into the panchax species in general!

Aplocheilus lineatus, I think. So yes, same species as the golden wonder.
