Bostrychus Lacepède [B. G. E.] 1801:140 Masc. Bostrychus sinensis Lacepède 1801. Type by subsequent designation. Type apparently designated by Bleeker 1874:301 [ref. 437] through Bostrichthys. Not preoccupied by Bostrichus in insects. Genus description also appeared in Sonnini 1803:159 (vol. 8) [ref. 30473]. Bostrichthys Duméril 1806, Psilus Fischer 1813, and Ictiopogon Rafinesque 1815 are apparently unneeded replacements. Bostrychichthys Agassiz 1846 is an unjustified emendation. •Valid as Bostrychus Lacepède 1801 -- (Akihito in Masuda et al. 1984:239 [ref. 6441], Maugé 1986:389 [ref. 6218], Birdsong et al. 1988:181 [ref. 7303], Harrison & Miller in Lévêque et al. 1992:831 [ref. 21590], Larson & Murdy 2001:3575 [ref. 26293], Hoese & Kottelat 2005:183 [ref. 28262], Hoese 2006:1597 [ref. 28988], Larson 2008:147 [ref. 30001], Pezold et al. 2007:481 [ref. 30082], Thacker 2011:81 [ref. 31726] in Butidae, Schliewen 2011:210 [ref. 31738], Kottelat 2013:389 [ref. 32989], Zhang et al. 2016:198 [ref. 34477]).
