The 2009 taxonomical review is also available here.

I've had a look at this paper and I'm really not sure what the purpose of it is, the conclusion seem to be that the small species have features of, erm, small species, and the large species show the reverse, it's then inferred (if I'm reading it correctly) that this indicates relationships, in conflict with the suggested relationships in the Parenti paper (and actually clashes with what I'd have said as a layman who happens to be familiar with some of these species in aquaria). It ends with "However, meristic characters of species within the genus Oryzias tend not to vary directly in response to environmental factors and so, along with the morphological differences observed in these six species reported here, this would suggest that they represent distinct species. To confirm the proposed distinct species nature for these six species, however, requires more detailed ecological studies and assessment of the levels of intraspecific variation." which to me is like saying "we think these six species may be six species".

Yep, and the spelling and grammar is woeful throughout too. O. 'cellebensis' anyone? /rolleyes.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":rolleyes:" border="0" alt="rolleyes.gif" />

It's also supposed to cover the species from Thailand, Japan and Indonesia yet several aren't mentioned.
