Rypticus Cuvier [G.] 1829:144 Masc. Anthias saponaceus Bloch & Schneider 1801. Type by subsequent designation. Type designated by Desmarest 1856:206 [ref. 17401] -- see Whitley 1939:222 [ref. 25866] but Whitley has wrong date for Desmarest. Type also designated by Bleeker 1876:258 [ref. 447]. Rhypticus Agassiz 1846:326, 328 [ref. 64] is an unjustified emendation. •Valid as Rypticus Cuvier 1829 -- (Courtenay 1967:244 [ref. 7882], Randall et al. 1971:175 [ref. 30341], Kendall 1984:501 [ref. 13663], Baldwin & Johnson 1993:263 [ref. 27443] in Epinephelinae, Guimarães 1999:337 [ref. 24429], Castro-Aguirre et al. 1999:262 [ref. 24550], Heemstra et al. 2003:1312 [ref. 27060], Baldwin & Weigt 2012:23 [ref. 31864], Brown et al. 2019:177 [ref. 36444]).
