Sciades (subgenus of Bagrus) Müller [J.] & Troschel [F. H.] 1849:6 Masc. Bagrus (Sciades) emphysetus Müller & Troschel 1849. Type by subsequent designation. Type apparently designated first by Bleeker 1862:8 [ref. 393], not Bagrus pictus designated by Eigenmann 1910:390 [ref. 1224]. Unfortunately, Bleeker 1858:62, 66 used Sciades for B. pictus, but his 1858 treatment does not constitute type designation for Sciades. Therefore, Sciades should be treated in the Ariidae, and as a senior synonym of Sciadeichthys. Treated by authors as masculine. •Questionably a synonym of Hexanematichthys Bleeker 1858 -- (Marceniuk & Ferraris in Reis et al. 2003:451 [ref. 27061]). •Valid as Sciades Müller & Troschel 1849 -- (Castro-Aguirre et al. 1999:144 [ref. 24550], Kailola 2004:143 [ref. 28108], Marceniuk & Menezes 2007:102 [ref. 29031], Ferraris 2007:53 [ref. 29155], Betancur-R. et al. 2007:347 [ref. 29268], Marceniuk & Birindelli 2010:61 [ref. 30960], Marceniuk et al. 2012:646 [ref. 32225]). Current status: Valid as Sciades Müller & Troschel 1849. Ariidae: Ariinae.
