Nobody knows exactly what Apistogramma taeniata is, because the species was described in 1862 after a specimen, which is today in a very bad condition and the verbal description is more than scarce. At the time of the description, the genus Apistogramma did not yet exist, no one had any idea of its variety of forms. After all, the fish that we can currently offer are very similar to those that the Apistogramma specialists regard as A. taeniata.
