Astyanax is a genus of freshwater fish in the family Characidae of the order Characiformes. Some of these fish, like many of their relatives, are kept as aquarium pets and aetyanax collectively as tetras. With around described species and new ones being described yearly,  this genus is among the largest of the entire order; Hyphessobrycon also has more than species and which one is larger at any one time depends on whether more species have been recently described in one or the other.
The blind and colorless cave tetra of Mexico is a famous member of the genus, but its taxonomic position is disputed: Some recognize it as part of the Mexican tetra A. The type species is A.
The generic name comes from Astyanaxa character in Greek mythologywho was the son of Hector of Troy ; in homage to this, several specific epithets also refer to the Iliad.

The lack of comprehensive phylogenetic analyses dealing with this genus is hindering a thorough review and the relationships remain as indeterminate as the monophyly is doubtful.
Although included in Astyanax by FishBasephylogenetic evidence supports moving A.
