Phosichthys Hutton [F. W.] 1872:55 Masc. Phosichthys argenteus Hutton 1872. Type by monotypy. Photichthys Hutton 1873:269, Pl. 15 [ref. 2285] is an incorrect subsequent spelling; Hutton p. 269 says,"...Dr. G√ľnther suggests that the name...should be altered to Photichthys, a suggestion...I willingly adopt." The correct family is Phosichthyidae as used by Fowler 1974:256 [ref. 7156], not Photichthyidae of authors. •Valid, but spelled Photichthys Hutton 1872 -- (Weitzman 1974:472 [ref. 5174], Schaefer et al. 1986:245 [ref. 5709], Paxton et al. 1989:188 [ref. 12442], Gomon et al. 1994:248 [ref. 22532]). •Valid as Phosichthys Hutton 1872 -- (Harold 1999:1904 [ref. 24741], Paxton et al. 2006:430 [ref. 28995], Harold & Gomon 2008:237 [ref. 30629], Kenaley & Stewart 2015:440 [ref. 34248], Balushkin 2017:659 [ref. 35810]). Current status: Valid as Phosichthys Hutton 1872. Phosichthyidae.
