Schilbe Oken [L.] (ex Cuvier) 1817:1183 Masc. Silurus mystus Linnaeus 1758. Type by monotypy. First appeared as "Les SchilbĂ©" in Cuvier 1816:202 [ref. 993]; latinized by Oken (see Gill 1903:966 [ref. 5768]). Spelled Schilbeus, Schilbea and Schilba in early literature. Spelled Schillee by Jerdon 1849:335 [ref. 4902]. The family name appears both as Schilbeidae and Schilbidae in current literature. Ferraris 2007:356 [ref. 29155] uses Schilbidae. The first use of the name at the family level was by Bleeker 1856 as Schilbeini, and that translates to Schilbeidae. •Valid as Schilbe Oken 1817 -- (De Vos 1986:41 [ref. 6191], Burgess 1989:99 [ref. 12860], Lévêque et al. 1989:118 [ref. 26480], Paugy & Bénech 1989:302 [ref. 26478], Paugy et al. 1990:339 [ref. 26477], De Vos in Lévêque et al. 1992:440 [ref. 21590], Poll & Gosse 1995:185 [ref. 24781], De Vos 1995:117 [ref. 23748], Seegers 1996:182 [ref. 23725], Dankwa et al. 1999:29 [ref. 28023], Diogo et al. 2004:92 [ref. 27670], Ferraris 2007:362 [ref. 29155], De Vos 2007:637 [ref. 30029], Marshall 2011:152 [ref. 31755], Kottelat 2013:251 [ref. 32989], Wang et al. 2016:14 [ref. 34152], Van der Bank et al. 2017:375 [ref. 35707]).
