Sorubim Cuvier [G.] 1829:293 Masc. Silurus lima Bloch & Schneider 1801. Type by subsequent designation. See analysis by Kottelat 1988:78, 80 [ref. 13380] who indicates that Sorubim Cuvier predates Sorubim Agassiz 1829. Kottelat regards the type as designated by Bleeker 1862:10, but perhaps technically that is incorrect since Bleeker was designating the type for Sorubim "Spix" [= Agassiz]; subsequent type designation for Sorubim Cuvier perhaps first dates to Kottelat 1988. •Valid as Sorubim Cuvier 1829 -- (Littmann et al. 2001:87 [ref. 25810], Lundberg & Littmann in Reis et al. 2003:442 [ref. 27061], Littmann 2007:2 [ref. 29028], Ferraris 2007:342 [ref. 29155], Lundberg et al. 2011:169 [ref. 31593], Ohara & Neuhaus 2016:291 [ref. 34536], Bertaco et al. 2016:420 [ref. 34561]). Current status: Valid as Sorubim Cuvier 1829. Pimelodidae.
