What species?

I have a female Molly (I am pretty sure itís a girl) but what species is she? I have 3 other fish. I have a Dalmatian Lyretail Molly, Sailfin Molly, Panda Lyretail Molly but I have no idea what species she is. She came with the sailfin but they didnít have a species code for it so we just got them Ďassortedí. Help!!

Looks like the original sphenops but with all the interbreeding they've done with Mollies for colors, it's probably just a color morph of a common.

Hi and welcome to the forum

Chocolate marble molly is the colour variety.
Poecilia sphenops is the scientific name (Genus is Poecilia) (species is sphenops).
