Genera in the family or subfamily Monocentridae: [ 5 ] records


Cleidopus De Vis [C. W.] 1882:367 Masc. Cleidopus gloriamaris De Vis 1882. Type by monotypy. •Valid as Cleidopus De Vis 1882 -- (Paxton et al. 1989:364 [ref. 12442], Gomon et al. 1994:411 [ref. 22532], Kotlyar 1996:208 [ref. 23292], Paxton 1999:2214 [ref. 24788], Paxton et al. 2006:766 [ref. 28994], Gomon 2008:433 [ref. 30616]). Current status: Valid as Cleidopus De Vis 1882. Monocentridae.

Ericius Tilesius [W. G. von] 1809:243 Masc. Monocentris carinata Bloch & Schneider 1801. Appeared without species, but Ericius was proposed for the same species that Bloch & Schneider, p. 100, called Monocentris; possibly can be regarded as a replacement for or alternate name for Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801. •In the synonymy of Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801 -- (Kotlyar 1996:199 [ref. 23292]). Current status: Synonym of Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801. Monocentridae.

Lepicantha Rafinesque [C. S.] 1815:85 Fem. Not available; name only and apparently an incorrect subsequent spelling of, or emendation of Lepisacanthus Lacepède 1801 -- (Kotlyar 1996:199 [ref. 23292]). •In the synonymy of Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801 -- (Kotlyar 1996:199 [ref. 23292]). Current status: Synonym of Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801. Monocentridae.

Lepisacanthus Lacepède [B. G. E.] 1801:320 Masc. Lepisacanthus japonicus Lacepède 1801 (= Gasterosteus japonicus Houttuyn 1782). Type by monotypy. Lepicantha Rafinesque 1815 evidently is an unjustified emendation or incorrect subsequent spelling. •Objective synonym of Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801 -- (Kotlyar 1996:199 [ref. 23292]). Current status: Synonym of Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801. Monocentridae.

Monocentris Bloch [M. E.] & Schneider [J. G.] 1801:100 Fem. Monocentris carinata Bloch & Schneider 1801 (= Gasterosteus japonicus Houttuyn 1782). Type by monotypy. Misspelled Monocentrus by authors. •Valid as Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801 -- (Shimizu in Masuda et al. 1984:109 [ref. 6441], Smith 1986:413 [ref. 5712], Paxton et al. 1989:364 [ref. 12442], Kotlyar 1996:199 [ref. 23292], Paxton 1999:2214 [ref. 24788], Paxton et al. 2006:766 [ref. 28994], Roberts 2015:1008 [ref. 34256], Fricke et al. 2018:110 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:44 [ref. 36273]). Current status: Valid as Monocentris Bloch & Schneider 1801. Monocentridae.
