Sufflamen Jordan [D. S.] 1916:27 Neut. Balistes capistratus Shaw 1804. Type by being a replacement name. Replacement for Pachynathus Swainson 1839 in fishes (ruled in Opinion 29 of the ICZN to be a typographical error for Pachygnathus; preoccupied by Pachygnathus Dug├ęs 1834 in arachnids). Cotilla Billberg 1833 is a senior synonym (see Kullander 2016:109 [ref. 34147]), but Sufflamen Jordan 1916 is in prevailing usage and therefore here used as the valid name for the genus. •Valid as Sufflamen Jordan 1916 -- (Matsuura 1980:47 [ref. 6943], Tyler 1980:123 [ref. 4477], Arai 1983:199 [ref. 14249], Aboussouan & Leis 1984:452 [ref. 13661], Matsuura in Masuda et al. 1984:358 [ref. 6441], Smith & Heemstra 1986:881 [ref. 5714], Lindberg et al. 1997:58 [ref. 23547], Matsuura 2001:3913 [ref. 26315], Allen et al. 2006:1875 [ref. 29098], Matsuura 2014:7 [ref. 33576], Fricke et al. 2018:379 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:178 [ref. 36273]). Current status: Valid as Sufflamen Jordan 1916. Balistidae.
