Mastacembelus Scopoli [J. A.] (ex Gronow) 1777:458 Masc. Ophidium [sic] mastacembelus Banks & Solander 1794. Type apparently by subsequent monotypy. Appeared first without species; addition of species not researched. Scopoli's spelling is Mastocembelus on Gronow's 1763 unavailable [Mastacembelus]; Scopoli's spelling regarded as in error (see Sufi 1956:106 [ref. 12498]; see also Wheeler 1956:91 [ref. 12499] for type species). But Kottelat (2013) says type is Rhynchobdella halepensis Bloch & Schneider 1801. •Valid as Mastacembelus Scoploi 1777 -- (Sufi 1956:105 [ref. 12498], Jayaram 1981:388 [ref. 6497], Travers 1984:143 [ref. 5147], Roberts 1986 [ref. 5802], Kottelat 1989:20 [ref. 13605], Roberts 1989:180 [ref. 6439], Ataur Rahman 1989:262 [ref. 24860], Zhong in Pan et al. 1991:518 [ref. 23876], Brittan 1998:95 [ref. 24513], Ataur Rahman 2003:286 [ref. 31338], Britz 2007:257 [ref. 29343], Vreven 2007:549 [ref. 30080], Vreven & Snoeks 2009:1019 [ref. 30552], Coad 2010:258 [ref. 36620], Brown et al. 2011:286 [ref. 31286], Yang & Zhou 2011:325 [ref. 31298], Marshall 2011:260 [ref. 31755], Plamoottil & Abraham 2013:6 [ref. 33148], Kottelat 2013:312 [ref. 32989], Jouladeh-Roudbar et al. 2015:895 [ref. 34062], Coad 2015:1 [ref. 35412], Zhang et al. 2016:192 [ref. 34477], Esmaeili et al. 2017:93 [ref. 35254], Britz 2017:75 [ref. 35487], Esmaeili et al. 2018:75 [ref. 36089]).
