ensifer, Holocentrus Jordan [D. S.] & Evermann [B. W.] 1903:176 [Bulletin of the U. S. Fish Commission v. 22 (1902); ref. 2450] Honolulu, Oahu Island, Hawaiian Islands. Holotype: USNM 50637. Paratypes: AMNH 2287 (1), ANSP 24216 (1); BPBM 1693 (1); FMNH 3952 (1); CAS [ex IU 9806] (1, missing); MCZ 28895 (1); CAS-SU 7458 (1); USNM 126155 [ex USFC 2708] (1). Type catalog: Böhlke 1953:63 [ref. 12291], Böhlke 1984:113 [ref. 13621], Ibarra & Stewart 1987:47 [ref. 12367]. The name ensifer can be a gerund (noun in apposition) or an adjective (C. R. Robins, pers. Comm.), so we suggest using ensifer since Jordan & Evermann use ensifer while in the masculine genus Holocentrus. •Valid as Sargocentron ensiferum (Jordan & Evermann 1903) -- (Randall 1998:26 [ref. 23300], Kotlyar 1998:201 [ref. 24674], Myers 1999:84 [ref. 23965], Nakabo 2000:487 [ref. 25086], Nakabo 2002:487 [ref. 26001], Myers & Donaldson 2003:617 [ref. 27495], Koeda et al. 2016:17 [ref. 35333]). •Valid as Sargocentron ensifer (Jordan & Evermann 1903) -- (Randall & Greenfield 1999:2235 [ref. 24790], Randall 1999:9 [ref. 25829], Randall in Randall & Lim 2000:601 [ref. 25122], andall 2005:94 [ref. 28239], Mundy 2005:311 [ref. 28379], Randall 2007:152 [ref. 30952], Shao et al. 2008:245[ref. 29952], Fricke et al. 2011:373 [ref. 31242], Eguchi & Motomura 2016:89 [ref. 34690]).
