I do not currently have references to cite for the speciation of fish,
however I have a couple for the case of rats. Genus _Rattus_
currently consists of 137 species [1,2] and is known to have
originally developed in Indonesia and Malaysia during and prior to the
Middle Ages . ( is the only source I have consulted.)

Supposedly, someone was going to be working on one over the summer. I
can't remember who it was that volunteered for this task, though.
