Poecilia is a genus of fishes in the family Poeciliidae of the order Cyprinodontiformes. They are native to fresh, brackish and salt water in the Americas, and some species in the genus are euryhaline. They are often seen as live-bearing aquarium fish. All species in Poecilia are called mollies except for the Endler's livebearer (P. wingei) and the well-known guppy (P. reticulata). Without a modifying adjective, molly usually refers to the species Poecilia sphenops.
