Neotype: SIO 64-28. Listed in Rofen 1966:595 [ref. 19801] as "Phanops volucris Rofen 1963" which refers to "an undescribed species from the northeastern Pacific" in Rofen 1963:4 [ref. 3795], but no name is proposed in that paper and no description given; dates to 1966 as above with brief characterization in key. Neotype designated as SIO 64-28 by Johnson 1974:107 [ref. 7050], but see Johnson's discussion of available Rofen specimens [which could be considered as original syntypes]. •Valid as Rosenblattichthys volucris (Rofen 1966) -- (Johnson 1974:107 [ref. 7050], Johnson 1982:163 [ref. 5519], Pequeño 1989:34 [ref. 14125], Castellanos-Galindo et al. 2006:253 [ref. 28944], Davis 2015:67 [ref. 33682]).
