coerulea, Coryphaena Bloch [M. E.] 1786:148, Pl. 176 [Naturgeschichte der ausländischen Fische v. 2; ref. 465] Bahamas and Antilles. No types known. On p. 120 of Bloch's Ichthyologie, v. 5 [ref. 21381]. This species dates to Edwards 1771 and not to Bloch 1786 unless the ICZN is petitioned or continued usage maintained. Catesby 1771 is a rejected work, and unavailable (Opinions 89 and 259) but the appendix by Edwards is available. Coryphaena coerulea Bloch 1786 is a primary homonym of Coryphaena coerulea Edwards 1771.

caeruleus, Sparus Shaw [G.] 1803:432 [General zoology or systematic natural history v. 4; ref. 4014] Martinique Island, West Indies. No types known.

coeruleus, Scarus Bloch [M. E.] & Schneider [J. G.] 1801:288 [M. E. Blochii, Systema Ichthyologiae; ref. 471] Treatment in Bloch & Schneider is based on the same source as Edwards coerulea. Bloch & Schneider treat Scarus coerulea seven pages before, so the above is subjectively invalid; secondarily preoccupied in Scarus by Coryphaena coerulea Bloch 1786 [author is actually Edwards 1771; see Coryphaena coerulea]. •Synonym of Scarus coeruleus (Edwards 1771). Current status: Synonym of Scarus coeruleus (Edwards 1771). Scaridae: Scarinae. Habitat: marine.
