argentea, Sciaena Forsskål [P. S.] 1775:xii, 51 [Descriptiones animalium (Forsskål); ref. 1351] Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Red Sea. Syntypes: ZMUC P48218 (dry skin). Type catalog: Nielsen 1974:65 [ref. 9588] with ZMUC P48218 as holotype. As Sciaena argentea, nageb on p. 51; here two names for the same taxon. The name is binominal as Sciaena argentea in the index on p. xii, but in the text on p. 51, two alternative names are proposed, argentea or nageb. Both index and text are linked together by the species code ‘60’; the name Sciaena argentea is available by indication (ICZN, Art. 12.2.2) (see Fricke 2008:37 [ref. 30182]). Holotype figured in Klausewitz & Nielsen 1965:Pls. 19-20 [ref. 20847]. •Valid as Pomadasys argenteus (Forsskål 1775) -- (Dor 1984:150 [ref. //29757], Talwar & Jhingran 1991:844 [ref. 20764], Kottelat et al. 1993:116 [ref. 23448], Goren & Dor 1994:41 [ref. 25356], Randall 1995:2120 [ref. 22896], Mohsin & Ambak 1996:356 [ref. 27969], Chen et al. 1997:101 [ref. 26476], Larson & Williams 1997:360 [ref. 23967], Carpenter et al. 1997:178 [ref. 23922], Johnson 1999:736 [ref. 25471], Nakabo 2000:842 [ref. 25086], Johnson in Randall & Lim 2000:619 [ref. 25122], Laboute & Grandperrin 2000:344 [ref. 25191], Bijukumar & Sushama 2000:186 [ref. 25703], Kimura & Peristiwady in Matsuura & Peristiwady 2000:238 [ref. 27511], Sakai et al. 2001:100 [ref. 25693], Hutchins 2001:35 [ref. 25847], McKay 2001:2983 [ref. 26103], Nakabo 2002:842 [ref. 26001], Manilo & Bogorodsky 2003:S109 [ref. 27377], Peristiwady et al. in Kimura & Matsuura 2003:98 [ref. 27510], Khan 2003:9 [ref. 27710], Randall 2005:265 [ref. 28239], Allen et al. 2006:1223 [ref. 29090], Fricke 2008:37 [ref. 30182], Hata et al. 2012:27 [ref. 32412].
