Aspredo Scopoli [J. A.] (ex Gronow) 1777:453 Masc. Silurus aspredo Linnaeus 1758. Appeared without species; first inclusion of species under name attributed to Scopoli not researched. Fowler (MS) lists the type as Silurus batrachus Linnaeus as designated by Eigenmann 1910:380 [ref. 1224] for Aspredo Bleeker. Mees 1987:183 [ref. 11510] indicates type is by subsequent designation of Fowler 1954:39 [our ref. 1465]. Type designated by Desmarest 1856:282 [ref. 17401] is Silurus callichthys Linnaeus 1758 -- see Whitley 1939:225 [ref. 25866] but Whitley has wrong date for Desmarest. Not Aspredo Swainson 1838. Gender uncertain, treated as masculine by current authors. •Valid as Aspredo Scopoli 1777 -- (Mees 1987:183 [ref. 11510], Burgess 1989:304 [ref. 12860], de Pinna 1998:318 [ref. 23847], Ferraris 2003:861 [ref. 26999], Friel in Reis et al. 2003:262 [ref. 27061], Ferraris 2007:58 [ref. 29155], Cardoso 2010:607 [ref. 30972], Ng 2010:271 [ref. 31110]). Current status: Valid as Aspredo Scopoli 1777. Aspredinidae: Aspredininae.
