Ruvettus Cocco [A.] 1833:18 Masc. Ruvettus pretiosus Cocco 1833. Type by monotypy. Apparently appeared first in Cocco 1833:21 [ref. 859] as Ruvetus, but without distinguishing features. Above reference 861 not seen; if it does not date to ref. 861 then it dates to Cocco 1834:33 [ref. 18013]. Rovettus and Rovetus are misspellings, but Cantrine (1833) described 'Rovetus' as a new genus; it may be considered independent from Ruvettus. •Valid as Ruvettus Cocco 1833 -- (Parin & Bekker 1973:460 [ref. 7206], Collette et al. 1984:600 [ref. 11421], Nakamura in Masuda et al. 1984:227 [ref. 6441], Parin in Whitehead et al. 1986:972 [ref. 13676], Nakamura 1986:828 [ref. 5696], Nakamura & Parin 1993:52 [ref. 21769], Gomon et al. 1994:815 [ref. 22532], Nakamura & Parin 2001:3700 [ref. 26304], Parin & Nakamura 2003:1813 [ref. 27115], Parin 2003:S26 [ref. 28536], Bray & Hoese 2006:1759 [ref. 29049], Gomon 2008:778 [ref. 30616], Lipej & Dulčić 2010:68 [ref. 36649], Shinohara et al. 2011:54 [ref. 31715], Parin et al. 2014:509 [ref. 33547], Stewart 2015:1613 [ref. 34196], Bañón et al. 2016:324 [ref. 34397], Fricke et al. 2018:361 [ref. 35805], Brown et al. 2019:172 [ref. 36444]).
