Achirus Lacepède [B. G. E.] 1802:658 Masc. Pleuronectes achirus Linnaeus 1758. Type by absolute tautonymy. Pleuronectes achirus Linnaeus was treated in the synonymy of Achirus fasciatus Lacepède 1802, but apparently fasciatus Lacepède is not the same as achirus Linnaeus and belongs in the genus Trinectes. •Valid as Achirus Lacepède 1802 -- (Robins et al. 1980:65 [ref. 7111], Lea et al. 1989:239 [ref. 21534], Allen 1991:205 [ref. 21090], Castro-Aguirre et al. 1999:492 [ref. 24550], Munroe 2003:1927 [ref. 27118], Ramos in Reis et al. 2003:667 [ref. 27061], Ramos et al. 2009:55 [ref. 30194]). Current status: Valid as Achirus Lacepède 1802. Achiridae.
