pompilus, Coryphaena Linnaeus [C.] 1758:262 [Systema Naturae, Ed. X v. 1; ref. 2787] Pelagic Ocean. No types known. Needs work. Haedrich 1973:559 [ref. 7216] and Haedrich in Whitehead et al. 1986:1178 [ref. 13677] place Centrolophus pompilus of Cuvier 1833:334, which is based on Coryphaena pompilus Linnaeus 1758, in the synonymy of the later Centrolophus niger (Gmelin 1789); Haedrich regarded Linnaeus' species essentially as unidentifiable. We suggest continued usage of Centrolophus niger (Gmelin 1789) -- the name in current use. •Synonym of Centrolophus niger (Gmelin 1789). Current status: Synonym of Centrolophus niger (Gmelin 1789). Centrolophidae. Habitat: marine.
