Brachyplatystoma Bleeker [P.] 1862:10 Neut. Platystoma vaillantii Valenciennes 1840. Type by original designation (also monotypic). Lundberg & Akama 2005:497 [ref. 28312] will apply applying to the ICZN to maintain usage of Brachyplatystoma Bleeker over two earlier names that are relatively unused since 1899 (Piramutana and Piratinga). ICZN Opinion 2208 (2008) gave precedence to Brachyplatystoma over Piratinga and Piramutana. •Valid as Brachyplatystoma Bleeker 1862 -- (Mees 1974:120 [ref. 2969], Stewart 1986:668 [ref. 5211], Burgess 1989:282 [ref. 12860], Lundberg et al. 1991:842 [ref. 19175], de Pinna 1998:314 [ref. 23847], Ferraris 2003:856 [ref. 26999], Lundberg & Littmann in Reis et al. 2003:434 [ref. 27061], Lundberg & Akama 2005:497 [ref. 28312], Ferraris 2007:330 [ref. 29155]). Current status: Valid as Brachyplatystoma Bleeker 1862. Pimelodidae.
