Thalassoma (subgenus of Zyrichthys) Swainson [W.] 1839:172, 224 Neut. Scarus purpureus Forsskål 1775. Type by monotypy. Subgenus should have been spelled Xyrichtys. Some species of Gomphosus Lacepède 1802, including the type species, are found to be nested within Thalassoma, so a generic rearrangement of both genera is needed, Bernardi et al. 2014:373 [ref. 27454]. •Valid as Thalassoma Swainson 1839 -- (Bauchot & Quignard 1973:441 [ref. 7204], Richards & Leis 1984:544 [ref. 13668], Araga in Masuda et al. 1984:205 [ref. 6441], Randall & Edwards 1985:14 [ref. 17448], Randall 1986:703 [ref. 5706], Quignard & Pras in Whitehead et al. 1986:940 [ref. 13676], Randall & Mee 1994:302 [ref. 21641], Allen 1995:75 [ref. 21960], Parenti & Randall 2000:44 [ref. 24943], Westneat 2001:3386 [ref. 26277], Westneat 2003:1703 [ref. 27105], Bernardi et al. 2004:369 [ref. 27454], Allen et al. 2006:1413 [ref. 29095], Kuiter 2010:183 [ref. 35285], Lipej & Dulčić 2010:55 [ref. 36649], Parenti & Randall 2011:36 [ref. 31299], Fricke et al. 2018:293 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:130 [ref. 36273], Brown et al. 2019:174 [ref. 36444]).
