ruthenus, Acipenser Linnaeus [C.] 1758:237 [Systema Naturae, Ed. X v. 1; ref. 2787] ?Danube River. Holotype: NRM 96. Based on several sources, see Kottelat 1997:31 [ref. 22952] so 96 should be regarded as a syntype. Apparently ruthenicus Brusina 1902:63 is a misspelling. Species name spelled rhutenus by Kielsen 1835:iii [ref. 30365]. •Valid as Acipenser ruthenus Linnaeus 1758 -- (Berg 1948:70 [ref. 12882], Lelek 1987:51 [ref. 22962], Coad 1995:7 [ref. 23608], Artyukhin 1995:7 [ref. 23782], Zhu 1995:6 [ref. 25213], Sokolov & Tsepkin 1996:23 [ref. 24640], Chereshnev 1996:599 [ref. 24659], Bemis et al. 1997:37 [ref. 22871], Kottelat 1997:31 [ref. 22952], Reshetnikov et al. 1997:726 [ref. 24702], Birstein & Bemis 1997:158 [ref. 29760], Sokolov 1998:21 [ref. 23571], Bogutskaya et al. 2001:42 [ref. 26178], Zhang 2001:29 [ref. 26586], Hanel 2003:46 [ref. 27894], Bogutskaya & Naseka 2004:24 [ref. 28183], Hanel & Lusk 2005:176 [ref. 28804], Fricke et al. 2007:21 [ref. 29533], Kottelat & Freyhof 2007:55 [ref. 29996], Esmaeili et al. 2010:365 [ref. 33391], Mecklenburg et al. 2011:117 [ref. 31212], Ruban et al. 2011:471 [ref. 31229], Hilton et al. 2011:136 [ref. 31407], Dolgov 2013:915 [ref. 33112], Parin et al. 2014:44 [ref. 33547], Litz & Koerber 2014:5 [ref. 33622], Jouladeh-Roudbar et al. 2015:858 [ref. 34062], Çiçek et al. 2015:143 [ref. 35151], Zhang et al. 2016:45 [ref. 34477], Nión et al. 2016:24 [ref. 35565], Esmaeili et al. 2017:25 [ref. 35254], Romanov et al. 2017:820 [ref. 35687], Esmaeili et al. 2018:7 [ref. 36089], Ćaleta et al. 2019:144 [ref. 37026], Lorenzoni et al. 2019:251 [ref. 37108]).
