venustus, Dinemus Poey [F.] 1860:161, Pl. 14 (fig. 1) [Memorias sobre la historia natural de la Isla de Cuba v. 2; ref. 3499] Cuba. Syntypes: MCZ 21812 (2). Type catalog: Howell Rivero 1938:181 [ref. 22926]. Lachner 1955:200 [ref. 10032] stated under Polymixia lowei, "Poey's (1880) account of venustus included one of the diagnostic characters [for lowei].... On the basis of his description and one cotype (MCZ 21812, 134 mm. standard length) I place venustus in the synonymy of lowei. The other cotype of venustus (also MCZ 21812) represents nobilis." Lachner did not establish a lectotype and subsequent workers continue to place venustus in the synonymy of both species. Apparently no lectotype has been designated, but the 134-mm specimen in MCZ 21812 should be designated lectotype. •Synonym of Polymixia nobilis Lowe 1836 in part -- (Hureau 1990:625 [ref. 17267], Kotlyar 1996:65 [ref. 23292]). •Synonym of Polymixia lowei Günther 1859 in part -- (Kotlyar 1996:74 [ref. 23292]).
