Genera in the family or subfamily Uranoscopidae: [ 20 ] records


Agnus Günther [A.] 1860:229 Masc. Uranoscopus anoplos Valenciennes 1832. Type by monotypy. Objectively invalid; preoccupied by Agnus Burmeister 1847 in Coleoptera. •Synonym of Astroscopus Brevoort 1860 -- (Mees 1960:47 [ref. 11931], Pietsch 1989:297 [ref. 12541], Vilasri 2013:87 [ref. 33304]).

Anema Günther [A.] 1860:226, 230 Neut. Uranoscopus lebeck Bloch & Schneider 1801. Type by subsequent designation. Three included species; Jordan 1919:296 [ref. 2410] wrongly lists anoplus as type (that species placed by Günther in Agnus). Apparently earliest type designation is by Mees 1960:47 [ref. 11931]; lebek treated in synonymy of Uranoscopus inermis by Günther. See also Synnema Haast 1873. •Synonym Ichthyscopus Swainson 1839 -- (Mees 1960:47 [ref. 11931], Pietsch 1989:297 [ref. 12541], Vilasri 2013:88 [ref. 33304]).
