Abudefduf (subgenus of Chaetodon) Forsskål [P. S.] 1775:xiii, 59 [ref. 1351]. Masc. Chaetodon sordidus Forsskål 1775. Type by subsequent designation. Type usually stated as determined through vernacular abu-defduf on p. xiii as Chaetodon sordidus, but Code does not provide for this; Fowler (MS) says Bleeker 1877:91 [ref. 452] designated saxatilis as type, but Bleeker was listing the type for Glyphidodon. Earliest technical designation of sordidus as type not researched. •Valid as Abudefduf Forsskål 1775 -- (Allen 1975:110 [ref. 97], Shen & Chan 1979:37 [ref. 6944], Yoshino in Masuda et al. 1984:196 [ref. 6441], Quignard & Pras in Whitehead et al. 1986:916 [ref. 13676], Allen 1986:671 [ref. 5631], Castro-Aguirre et al. 1999:395 [ref. 24550], Tang 2001:596 [ref. 25446], Allen 2001:3341 [ref. 26132], Carter & Kaufman 2003:1695 [ref. 27102], Allen et al. 2006:1440 [ref. 29090], Kottelat 2013:375 [ref. 32989], Stewart et al. 2015:1409 [ref. 34288]).
