aculeatus, Lophius Mitchill [S. L.] 1818:325 [American Monthly Magazine and Critical Review v. 2 (no. 5, art. 1); ref. 30214] 32°28'N, 78°47'09"W, about 92.4 kilometers at 107° off Off Charleston Light, South Carolina, USA [Original: Straits of Bahamas, Atlantic, depth 40 fathoms]. Neotype: AMNH 76821. This species is preoccupied by Lophius aculeatus Walbaum 1792, which does not appear to have been used; therefore, Lophius aculeatus Mitchill 1818 can be treated as a nomen protectum.
