Gavialiceps Alcock [A. W.] (ex Wood-Mason) 1889:460 Neut. Gavialiceps taeniola Alcock 1889. Type by subsequent designation. Described first with 2 included species. Alcock (1891:137 [ref. 87]) says taeniola is not a Gavialiceps, but does not technically fix the type of Gavialiceps as microps. Type selected by Gilbert 1905:586 [ref. 1631]. See Tighe 1989:617 [ref. 13291]. Gavialichthys Golvan 1962 is a nomen nudum that Whtiley 1970:243 [ref. 6601] regards as a lapsus calami for Gavialiceps Alcock. Possibly in Congridae. •Valid as Gavialiceps Alcock 1889 -- (Karrer 1982:52 [ref. 5679], Machida in Masuda et al. 1984:29 [ref. 6441], Karmovskaya 1993:742 [ref. 22018], Smith 1999:1683 [ref. 24661] in Congridae, Hoese & Gates 2006:293 [ref. 28997] in Congridae, Ho et al. 2010:25 [ref. 31218], Zhang et al. 2010:300 [ref. 31511], Fricke et al. 2018:47 [ref. 35805], Lin & Ho 2018:215 [ref. 36047]). Current status: Valid as Gavialiceps Alcock 1889. Congridae: Congrinae.
