Paratheraps fenestratus or Vieja fenestrata?? I myself lost a little!
It's the same fish
What genus name one uses, has to do with opinions on details which may best be kept out of this discussion. All speciesnames for central american cichlids are used only once. Therefore, whatever genus, of you recognize the species name, it must be the same fish.
The fifference between fenestratus and fenestrata (you can also find fenestratum) has to do with grammar: the genus has a grammatical gender, and the species name will have to adapt
Again, nothing to worry about

No population of Paratheraps bifasciatus can be the "best" representative of the species. Too much variability.
