Only four of the Thorichthys species are found in Guatemala. T. affinis, T. aureus, T. meeki and T. pasionis.
T. aureus is a cichlid from Lake Isabal our largest lake in the SE of the country. The others should be found in the Peten, Lakes or rivers.
The only Thorichthys normally found in UK aquariums is the Firemouth, T. meeki. Any others found would be an expensive discovery. With constant tank breeding the Firemouth has probably lost a lot of its fire.

Thorichthys ellioti. (Meek 1905) South Mexico. (Most likely a synonym of T. maculipinnis described by Steindachner ,1864

Meek has had some bad press for some of his work.

Seth Eugene Meek (1859, Hicksville, Ohio, - 6 July 1914, Chicago) was an American ichthyologist at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. He was the first compiler of a book on Mexican freshwater fishes. Together with his assistant, Samuel F. Hildebrand, he produced the first book on the freshwater fishes of Panama.
