Alticus Lacepède [B. G. E.] (ex Commerson) 1800:479 (footnote) Masc. Blennius saliens Lacepède 1800. Type by monotypy. Name published in synonymy of Blennius saliens, but available because of later use (possibly by Bleeker 1869:234 [ref. 426], Jordan & Seale 1906:421 [ref. 2497] and others (Art. 11.6)). An alternative view is that Alticus was part of a polynomial and not available (genus would then date to Valenciennes); see remarks under Opinion 89 in Appendix B in Eschmeyer et al. 1990 [ref. 26735]. •Valid as Alticus Lacepède 1800 -- (Smith-Vaniz & Springer 1971:14 [ref. 4145], Yoshino in Masuda et al. 1984:300 [ref. 6441], Bath 1986:354 [6217], Bath 2001:5 [ref. 25713], Springer 2001:3540 [ref. 26290], Hastings & Springer 2009:71 [ref. 30395], Lin & Hastings 2013:3 [ref. 33286], Fricke et al. 2018:306 [ref. 35805]). Current status: Valid as Alticus Lacepède 1800. Blenniidae: Salariinae.
