Genera in the family or subfamily Ephippidae: [ 10 ] records


Chaetodipterus Lacepède [B. G. E.] 1802:503 Masc. Chaetodon plumieri Bloch 1787. Type by monotypy. Chetodipterus Rafinesque 1815:83 [ref. 3584] an incorrect subsequent spelling. •Valid as Chaetodipterus Lacepède 1802 -- (Matsuura in Uyeno et al. 1983:385 [ref. 14275], Johnson 1984:465 [ref. 9681], Desoutter 1986:340 [ref. 6212], Castro-Aguirre et al. 1999:455 [ref. 24550], Burgess 2003:1799 [ref. 27101]). Current status: Valid as Chaetodipterus Lacepède 1802. Ephippidae.

Ephippus Cuvier [G.] 1816:335 Masc. Chaetodon orbis Bloch 1787. Type by subsequent designation. Type as given by Jordan 1917:105 [ref. 2407]. Type possibly E. argus of Bloch as designated by Bleeker 1876:302 [ref. 448] for Cuvier 1817 [=1816] but not Cuvier 1829 which would upset current usage of Scatophagus. Jordan indicated that type was restricted by Cuvier & Valenciennes 1831 [ref. 4881], but they apparently did not fix the type. ICZN Case 3528 (Kottelat 2010:303 [ref. 31206]) fixes the type (ICZN 2012) as orbis. •Synonym of Chaetodipterus Lacepède 1801 -- (Smith 1986:605 [ref. 5712]). •Valid as Ephippus Cuvier 1816 -- (Hayashi in Masuda et al. 1984:181 [ref. 6441], Heemstra 2001:3612 [ref. 26298], Kottelat 2010:303 [ref. 31206], Kottelat 2013:437 [ref. 32989]). Current status: Valid as Ephippus Cuvier 1816. Ephippidae.

Ilarches Cantor [T. E.] 1849:1142 [160] Masc. Chaetodon orbis Bloch 1787. Type by being a replacement name. Unneeded replacement for Ephippus Cuvier 1816, not preoccupied by Ephippium Latreille 1802 in Diptera. On page 160 of separate. •Objective synonym of Ephippus Cuvier 1816. Current status: Synonym of Ephippus Cuvier 1816. Ephippidae.

Parapsettus (subgenus of Psettus) Steindachner [F.] 1875:78 Masc. Psettus (Parapsettus) panamensis Steindachner 1876.

Current status: Valid as Parapsettus Steindachner 1875. Ephippidae.

Parephippus Gill [T. N.] 1861:165 Masc. Ephippus gigas Cuvier 1829. Type by original designation. •Synonym of Chaetodipterus Lacepède 1802 -- (Desoutter 1986:340 [ref. 6212] but with wrong type). Current status: Synonym of Chaetodipterus Lacepède 1802. Ephippidae.

Platax Cuvier [G.] 1816:334 Masc. Chaetodon teira of Bloch & Schneider 1801 (= Chaetodon teira Forsskål 1775). Type by subsequent designation.
