purpureus, Mesoprion Cuvier [G.] in Cuvier & Valenciennes 1828:471 [Histoire naturelle des poissons v. 2; ref. 997] Santo Domingo. No types known. This species was mentioned under the account of Mesopiron griseus on p. 471 but with a characterization of four anal spines based on a Plumier drawing; although Cuvier mentioned that Plumier's drawing may be inaccurate. Cuvier's treatment of Mesoprion aya (not of Bloch) on p. 457 of the same work also refers to a specimen with 4 anal spines (evidently the same fish). The mention of purpureus by Cuvier was overlooked by Rivas 1966:126 [ref. 23910] who attributed the species to Poey and indicated incorrectly that the name purpureus did not appear in Cuvier. Poey included Cuvier's Mesoprion aya and Mesoprion purpureus in his purpureus, and also Bodianus aya Bloch and B. ruber Bloch & Schneider. The last two Bloch species were treated as unidentifiable and most likely a sciaenid by Rivas 1966:119-120 [ref. 23910], but given the inaccuracy of drawings of this vintage such assumptions are unwarranted. Also the plate accompanying the original descriptions of Bodianus viranetus Lacepède 1802 and Sparus tetracanthus Bloch 1791 are evidently redrawn from the same Plumier drawing of the specimen with 4 anal spines. One problem is how best to treat the Mesoprion purpureus in Cuvier on p. 471. The best solution perhaps is to reject aya Bloch and ruber Bloch as unidentifiable and to treat purpureus in Cuvier as a name mentioned in passing and not available (and not a name in synonymy). Careful fixation of species with types also is needed. Perhaps the ICZN should be requested to reject the earlier names and should, in the interest of stability in this commercially important group, establish authorship as Poey 1866 [or perhaps 1875] under the name purpureus. •Questionably in the synonymy of Lutjanus campechanus (Poey 1860) or Lutjanus purpureus (Poey 1866).
