fusculus, Centropristes Poey [F.] 1861:342 [Memorias sobre la historia natural de la Isla de Cuba v. 2; ref. 3499] Havana, Cuba. Holotype (unique): MCZ 10015. Type catalog: Howell Rivero 1938:193 [ref. 22926]. Original genus should have been Centropristis. •Valid as Centropristis fuscula Poey 1861 -- (Bortone 1977:24 [ref. 7059], Robins & Ray 1986:138 [ref. 23100], Heemstra et al. 2003:1326 [ref. 27060], Nelson et al. 2004:126 [ref. 27807], Page et al. 2013:131 [ref. 32708], Lins Oliveira et al. 2015:148 [ref. 37485], Parenti & Randall 2020:110 [ref. 37354]).

Centropristis is feminine, so correct is probably Centropristes melana when recognized. Mentioned as sometimes treated as a subspecies of striata by Heemstra et al. 2003:1334 [ref. 27060]. Original genus should have been Centropristis. •Synonym of Centropristis striata (Linnaeus 1758), but a valid subspecies -- (Bortone 1977:23 [ref. 7059]). •Synonym of Centropristis striata (Linnaeus 1758) -- (Heemstra et al. 2003:1334 [ref. 27060], Parenti & Randall 2020:111 [ref. 37354]).

Type catalog: Paepke 1999:134-135 [ref. 24282] with a holotype.
