Equetus Rafinesque [C. S.] 1815:86 Masc. Eques americanus Bloch 1793. Type by being a replacement name. As "Equetus R. [Rafinesque] Eques Bl. [Bloch]." Unnecessary replacement name for Eques Bloch 1793 (allegedly preoccupied by Eques Linnaeus 1758 in Lepidoptera, which is unavailable according to Parenti 2020:17 [ref. 37439]). Equietus is a misspelling. •Valid as Equetus Rafinesque 1815 -- (Chao 1978:27 [ref. 6983], Uyeno & Sato in Uyeno et al. 1983:362 [ref. 14275], Chao 2003:1589 [ref. 27097]). •Synonym of Eques Bloch 1793 -- (Parenti 2020:17 [ref. 37439]). Current status: Synonym of Eques Bloch 1793. Sciaenidae.
