The phrasing of the question is slippery, Chris, but I'll hazard a guess the
_Rivulus marmoratus_ would answer the description here; you can find it in
coastal Florida, and also in various cays around the Caribbean where you
certainly don't find "North American minnows". (Luckily for us the lawyers
are still tied up with the Microsoft case.)
