Syntypes: OM I.96 (1), QM I.209 (dry mount). Original as aetate-varians. Specimen ZMUO J2350 is labeled a syntype but is not a type according to Pethon 1969:1, 6 [ref. 19268]. Later called semistrigatus by De Vis 1882. •Synonym of Scatophagus argus (Linnaeus 1766) -- (Parenti 2004:2 [ref. 27605], Allen et al. 2006:1722 [ref. 29090]). •Synonym of Selenotoca multifasciata (Richardson 1846) -- (Kottelat 2013:439 [ref. 32989] with question) Current status: Synonym of Selenotoca multifasciata (Richardson 1846).

Original description was brief and conditional, and the species was not treated as valid in this work. Later validation by Castelnau. Species name was misprinted as altermans in original description according to Castelnau 1879:376 [ref. 764], and this was mentioned in a footnote by Bauchot 1963:150 [ref. 20718] -- see Parenti 2004:4 [ref. 27605].
