Neonesthes Regan [C. T.] & Trewavas [E.] 1929:30 Masc. Neonesthes macrolychnus Regan & Trewavas 1929. Type by monotypy; second species doubtfully included as, "N. macrolychnus may prove to be a synonym of Astronesthes capensis." Gender not indicated by the authors, probably masculine [macrolychnus] in reference to the accepted masculine gender of Astronesthes, although the Greek -esthes [garment] would lead to a feminine gender. Wrongly as feminine in Catalog of Fishes 1998 publication. •Valid as Neonesthes Regan & Trewavas 1929 -- (Gibbs 1964:346 [ref. 6960], Gibbs & Morrow 1973:128 [ref. 7174], Gibbs in Whitehead et al. 1984:333 [ref. 13675], Kawaguchi & Moser 1984:171 [ref. 13642], Fujii in Masuda et al. 1984:50 [ref. 6441], Fink 1985:11 [ref. 5171], Gibbs 1986:233 [ref. 5655], Paxton et al. 1989:196 [ref. 12442], Harold 1999:1906 [ref. 24741], Harold 2003:894 [ref. 27001], Paxton et al. 2006:438 [ref. 28995], Liao et al. 2006:517 [ref. 29419], Stewart & Kenaley 2015:484 [ref. 34250]).
