nigripinnis, Argyrosomus Milner [J. W.] (ex Gill) 1874:87 [United States Commission of Fish and Fisheries, Report of the Commissioner v. 2 (for 1872-1873); ref. 17704] Lake Michigan off Racine, Wisconsin, U.S.A. Holotype: USNM 12455 (not USNM 19756). Apparently not available from Hoy 1872:99 [ref. 18119] as an Argyrosomus with black fins -- not sufficient distinguishing features. We date to Milner as above with type as USNM 12455.
