Holacanthus Lacep├Ęde [B. G. E.] 1802:525 Masc. Chaetodon tricolor Bloch 1795. Type by subsequent designation. Type designated by Desmarest 1856:227 [ref. 17401] -- see Whitley 1939:223 [ref. 25866] but Whitley has wrong date for Desmarest, also by Bleeker 1876:307-308 [ref. 448]. Holacantha Rafinesque 1815:83 [ref. 3584] and Holocanthus Gray 1831:35 (not investigated) are apparently incorrect subsequent spellings. •Valid as Holacanthus Lacepède 1802 -- (Matsuura in Uyeno et al. 1983:392 [ref. 14275], Araga in Masuda et al. 1984:188 [ref. 6441], Burgess 2003:1675 [ref. 27101], Hernández-Velasco et al. 2016:1 [ref. 34760]).
