Acanthurus (subgenus of Chaetodon) Forsskål [P. S.] 1775:59 [ref. 1351]. Masc. Teuthis hepatus Linnaeus 1766. Type by subsequent designation. Type designated by Desmarest 1856:246 [ref. 17401] -- see Whitley 1939:224 [ref. 25866] but Whitley has wrong date for Desmarest. Acanthura is a misspelling.
