iseri, Callyodon Bloch [M. E.] 1789:245 [Abhandlungen der B√∂hmischen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften v. 4 (for 1788); ref. 467] St. Croix Island, Virgin Islands, West Indies. Syntypes: ZMB 2693 (2, poor condition) coast of America, 33026 (1, left skin) no locality. Type catalog: Paepke 1999:126 [ref. 24282]. Regarded by Randall & Nelson 1979:211 [ref. 19975] as an inadvertent error for iserti; Bloch spelled the name as iseri three times in Latinized form, so one could argue that there was no inadvertent error. Later named Scarus croicensis by Bloch 1790. Objective senior synonym of Scarus croicensis (Randall & Nelson 1979:211 [ref. 19975], Parenti & Randall 2000:57 [ref. 24943]), but some current authors use the name croicensis as the valid one for this species. •Valid as Scarus iseri (Bloch 1789) -- (Bellwood 1994:67 [ref. 19116] as iserti, Smith-Vaniz et al. 1999:299 [ref. 25013] as iserti, Parenti & Randall 2000:57 [ref. 24943], Schmitter-Soto et al. 2000:164 [ref. 27754] as iserti, Moura et al. 2001:509 [ref. 25371] as iserti, Westneat 2003:1732 [ref. 27105], Smith et al. 2003:45 [ref. 27621] as iserti, Nelson et al. 2004:156 [ref. 27807], McEachran & Fechhelm 2005:536 [ref. 28815], Page et al. 2013:161 [ref. 32708], Smith-Vaniz & Jelks 2014:64 [ref. 33341], Robertson et al. 2016:147 [ref. 34961]). Current status: Valid as Scarus iseri (Bloch 1789). Scaridae: Scarinae. Distribution: Western Atlantic. Habitat: marine.
