This species was originally described as Cynolebias fulminantes but Costa (2007b) placed it in Simpsonichthys.

Alternative name(s): Cynolebias fulminantes / Hypsolebias fulminantes, .

The type locality of this brilliant coloured species is at Guanambi, Estado da Bahia, Brasil.

It was Gilberto Campello Brasil, the co- author of the description, who discovered this fish on the first day of Januari in 1992.

Costa et al. named the species after the lightning colours (from latin: Fulmino, fulminantes) in males. He places the species near to S. adornatus and S. hellneri .

This species seems not to difficult in reproduction and need only some extra attention during the first days as they need very small food as just hatched artemia or infusoria.

The way they spawn is, as most annual species do, by diving completely into the substratum.

This is best placed in a small jar or drinking glass at the bottom, filled with peat moss from at least the depth of the body length of the fishes.

After 5-6 weeks the fishes are capable to produce there first eggs if food was given sufficiently.
