Anaora Gray [J. E.] 1835:Pl. 90 (v. 2) Fem. Anaora tentaculata Gray 1835. Type by monotypy. As Amora on plate examined, as Anaora in list of figures; Jordan 1919:179 [ref. 2410] regarded Amora as a misspelling; Sawyer 1953:54 [ref. 6842] lists only Amora. In footnote to list of plates (1835) it is stated, "In some copies a few of the names on the Plates are incorrectly printed but these are corrected in this list,..." That list uses Anaora, and in the case of Plate 90, the plate was apparently issued as the same time as the list of plates [technically, "Directions for arranging the plates, of the numbers XI. to XX."]. •Valid as Anaora Gray 1835 -- (Fricke 1982:57 [ref. 5432], Fricke 1983:48 [ref. 8349], Nakabo 1982:108 [ref. 3139], Nakabo in Masuda et al. 1984:345 [ref. 6441], Fricke 2001:3550 [ref. 26292], Fricke 2002:9 [ref. 26547], Hoese & Bray 2006:1579 [ref. 29000], Fricke et al. 2019:263 [ref. 36673]). Current status: Valid as Anaora Gray 1835. Callionymidae.
