periophthalmus, Salarias Valenciennes [A.] in Cuvier & Valenciennes 1836:311, Pl. 328 [Histoire naturelle des poissons v. 11; ref. 1005] Tikopia Island, Solomon Islands, western Pacific. Lectotype: MNHN 0000-0857. Type catalog: Bauchot 1967:30 [ref. 20734] with a holotype that becomes the lectotype since it was not known how many specimens were originally included (see Springer & Williams 1994:66-67 [ref. 21878] for nomenclatural comments). Misspelled Salarias percophthalmus by Swainson 1839:274 [ref. 4304]. Misspelled Salarias periopthalmus by Waite 1899:545 [ref. 17824]. The name periophthalmus is a noun and should retain that spelling when in Blenniella. •Valid as Istiblennius periophthalmus (Valenciennes 1836) -- (Dor 1984:231 [ref. 29757], Yoshino in Masuda et al. 1984:300 [ref. 6441], Springer 1986:749 [ref. 5719], Shen et al. 1986:36 [ref. 13821], Allen & Swainston 1988:130 [ref. 25477], Winterbottom et al. 1989:61 [ref. 13251], Randall et al. 1990:385 [ref. 15987], Randall et al. 1994:238 [ref. 21645], Goren & Dor 1994:60 [ref. 25356]). •Valid as Blenniella periophthalmus (Valenciennes 1836) -- (Springer & Williams 1994:65 [ref. 21878], Randall 1995:315 [ref. 22896], Allen 1997:208 [ref. 23977], Anderson et al. 1998:26 [ref. 23611], Myers 1999:223 [ref. 23965] as periophthalma, Carpenter et al. 1997:209 [ref. 23922], Fricke 1999:473 [ref. 24106], Springer in Randall & Lim 2000:632 [ref. 25122], Nakabo 2000:1102 [ref. 25182], Hutchins 2001:41 [ref. 25847], Springer 2001:3543 [ref. 26290], Nakabo 2002:1102 [ref. 26193], Allen & Adrim 2003:53 [ref. 26830], Manilo & Bogorodsky 2003:S116 [ref. 27377], Heemstra et al. 2004:3327 [ref. 27945], Randall 2005:484 [ref. 28239], Hoese & Bray 2006:1544 [ref. 29000], Fricke et al. 2009:94 [ref. 30213], Patzner et al. 2009:450 [ref. 30396], Motomura et al. 2010:190 [ref. 31256], llen & Erdmann 2012:804 [ref. 31980], Fricke et al. 2013:268 [ref. 32706], Fricke et al. 2014:148 [ref. 33932], Fricke et al. 2018:308 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:138 [ref. 36273], Arndt & Fricke 2019:12 [ref. 36883], Eagderi et al. 2019:41 [ref. 37020], Zajonz et al. 2019:94 [ref. 36871]).
