Trichogaster Bloch [M. E.] & Schneider [J. G.] 1801:164 Fem. Trichogaster fasciata Bloch & Schneider 1801. Type by subsequent designation. Two originally-included species are fasciatus and trichopterus; type not designated by Cuvier in Cuvier & Valenciennes. Type by subsequent designation of Jordan 1917:58 [ref. 2407]. Myers 1923:112 [ref. 12875] analysis of type apparently in error (see Derijst 1997:223 [ref. 23499]). The gender of Trichogaster is feminine, so fasciata is correct. Kottelat adds confusion as he says fasciatus (2013) on p. 456 and fasciata on page 457. •Treated as valid as Trichogaster Bloch & Schneider 1801 -- (Liem 1962:37 [ref. 20932], Kottelat 1985:275 [ref. 11441], Kottelat 1989:20 [ref. 13605], Roberts 1989:177 [ref. 6439] with type as trichopterus, Derijst 1997:223 [ref. 23449] with type as fasciatus, Britz 2001:316 [ref. 25717], Britz & Kottelat 2002:249 [ref. 26536], Ataur Rahman 2003:302 [ref. 31338], Britz 2004:7 [ref. 30110] with type as fasciatus, Tan & Ng 2005:132 [ref. 28283], Töpfer 2008:47 [ref. 30111] with type as fasciatus, Kottelat 2013:456 [ref. 32989] with type as fasciatus, Low et al. 2014:25 [ref. 33509], Zhang et al. 2016:209 and 213 [ref. 34477]). Current status: Valid as Trichogaster Bloch & Schneider 1801. Osphronemidae: Trichogastrinae.
