Sorubimichthys Bleeker [P.] 1862:10 Masc. Sorubim jandia Spix 1829. Type by original designation (also monotypic). Bleeker designated the type as "Sorubim jandia Spix"; this corresponds to Sorubim spatula Spix & Agassiz in text (p. 26) (See Whitehead & Myers 1971 [ref. 6584]; also Lundberg et al. 1989:333 [ref. 12544]). Technically, jandia was a Spix name first published in synonymy (and on pl. 14, if not considered a vernacular), but it was validated to Agassiz 1829 by its use as a valid name by Bleeker. •Valid as Sorubimichthys Bleeker 1862 -- (Lundberg et al. 1989 [ref. 12544], Burgess 1989:282 [ref. 12860], Lundberg et al. 1991:842 [ref. 19175], de Pinna 1998:314 [ref. 23847], Lundberg & Littmann in Reis et al. 2003:442 [ref. 27061], Ferraris 2007:342 [ref. 29155], Lundberg et al. 2011:165 [ref. 31593]). Current status: Valid as Sorubimichthys Bleeker 1862. Pimelodidae.
