Gomphosus Lacepède [B. G. E.] 1801:100 Masc. Gomphosus caeruleus Lacepède 1801. Type by subsequent designation. Type designated by Jordan 1917:61 [ref. 2407]. Also appeared in Sonnini 1803:108 (vol. 8) [ref. 30473]. Some species of Gomphosus, including the type species, are found to be nested within Thalassoma Swainson 1839, so a generic rearrangement of both genera is needed, Bernardi et al. 2014:373 [ref. 27454]. •Valid as Gomphosus Lacepède 1801 -- (Araga in Masuda et al. 1984:205 [ref. 6441], Randall 1986:693 [ref. 5706], Parenti & Randall 2000:18 [ref. 24943], Westneat 2001:3386 [ref. 26277], Allen et al. 2006:1389 [ref. 29095], Kuiter 2010:208 [ref. 35285], Fricke et al. 2018:282 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:124 [ref. 36273], Fricke et al. 2019:227 [ref. 36673]). Current status: Valid as Gomphosus Lacepède 1801. Labridae.
