parmatus, Mugil Cantor [T. E.] 1849:1076 [94] [Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal v. 18 (pt 2); ref. 715] Penang, Malaysia. Holotype (unique): whereabouts unknown. On p. 94 of separate. Unfortunately, Ghasemzadeh et al. 2004:15 [ref. 28614] wrongly attribute a holotype to Bleeker's oligolepis, but no holotype was established originally; they designated that "holotype" as the neotype for Mugil parmatus Cantor 1849, but no length was given for the "holotype" so the neotype designation was not established [one could argue that the neotype could be discerned by looking for a specimen so marked in RMNH 6405 (7 specimens)]. •Wrongly in the synonymy of Lisa oligolepis Bleeker 1859 -- (Ataur Rahman 2003:300 [ref. 31338]). •Valid as Liza parmata (Cantor 1849) -- (Kottelat et al. 1993:125 [ref. 23448], Thomson 1997:528 [ref. 23428], Harrison & Senou 1999:2090 [ref. 24780], Allen et al. 2008:79 [ref. 30265], Shen & Durand 2016:77 [ref 35591]). •Valid as "Mugil" parmatus Cantor 1849 -- (Senou in Randall & Lim 2000:625 [ref. 25122]). •Valid as Planiliza parmata (Cantor 1849) -- (Durand et al. 2012:693 [ref. 32366]). •Valid as Paramugil parmatus (Cantor 1849) -- (Ghasemzadeh et al. 2004:15 [ref. 27624] with wrong date and neotype designation, Hoese & Bray 2006:683 [ref. 29000] dated 1850, Shibukawa 2009:44 [ref. 30449], Larson et al. 2013:58 [ref. 32988], Yoshida et al. 2013:57 [ref. 34464], Fricke et al. 2014:37 [ref. 33932], Fricke et al. 2018:96 [ref. 35805]).
