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.
