Original description as Heros beani:

ZooBank:64B9DC3D-B316-4211-85EB-F4581C70DDF3.

  • Jordan, David Starr. 1888. "List of fishes collected by Alphonse Ferrer about Mazatlan, with descriptions of two new species - Heros beani and Poecilia butleri". Proceeding of the United States National Museum. 11(719):332-333 (ffm00330)

Conservation: Mayaheros beani is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (2018). Given the very large range of the species and the relative environmental stability of many of the locales where it dwells, there is currently little concern about the future of this species.
