Microphis Kaup [J. J.] 1853:234 Masc. Syngnathus cuncalus Hamilton 1822. Type by subsequent designation. Type designated by Jordan 1919:254 [ref. 2410] as above; Jordan & Evermann 1898:773 [ref. 2443] have "(cuneatus)" as type, but that is apparently a misspelling for cuncalus Hamilton. Duncker 1912 wrongly says type is Microphis brachyurus Bleeker 1853 (not an originally-included species). Kottelat (2013) says designated by Jordan & Evermann 1896:773 as cuncalus, deemed to be cited in the correct original form. •Valid as Microphis Kaup 1853 -- (Dawson 1984 [ref. 5879], Dawson 1985:126 [ref. 6541], Dawson 1986:454 [ref. 5650], Paxton et al. 1989:425 [ref. 12442], Kottelat 1989:16 [ref. 13605], Ataur Rahman 1989:36 [ref. 24860], Allen 1991:107 [ref. 21090], Lévêque in Lévêque et al. 1992:578 [ref. 21590], Paulus 1999:2268 [ref. 24794], Ferraris in Reis et al. 2003:591 [ref. 27061], Ataur Rahman 2003:51 [ref. 31338], Paxton et al. 2006:835 [ref. 29073], Snoeks & Vreven 2007:579 [ref. 30079], Scharpf 2007:36 [ref. 30398], Kuiter 2009:271 [ref. 30404], Marshall 2011:262 [ref. 31755], Kottelat 2013:305 [ref. 32989], Hamilton et al. 2016:Supplement 4 [ref. 35615], Fricke et al. 2018:124 [ref. 35805], Fricke et al. 2019:96 [ref. 36673]).
