lacepede, Lophotus Giorna [M. E.] 1809:179, 180, Pl. 2 (fig. 1) [Mémoires de l'Académie impériale des sciences, littérature et beaux-arts, Turin, Sér. Sciences Physiques et Mathématiques. [v. 16] (pt 1) (for 1805-1808); ref. 1808] No types known. Appeared as "Le Lophote-Lacepede" on p. 180, with genus as "Lophote-Lophotus" on p. 179; now accepted as valid by authors, although 2 other species are treated as vernacular names in the same work. Also appeared in Cuvier 1813 [ref. 26409] and Bosc 1817:186 as "Le Lophote cépédien." Also as cepedii Schinz 1822 and Goldfuss 1820, and cepedianus Cloquet 1823. All are apparently the same species which we call Lophotus lacepede Giorna 1809. Name appeared as Lophotes cepedianus in Cuvier & Valenciennes 1835:xxiij, Pl. 301 [ref. 1004]. •Wrongly valid as Lophotus lacepedei [sic] Bosc 1817 -- (Palmer 1973:334 [ref. 7195], Palmer in Whitehead et al. 1986:734 [ref. 13676], Robins & Ray 1986:118 [ref. 23100], Quiniou & Quéro 1990:646 [ref. 17473], Gomon et al. 1994:430 [ref. 22532], Lipej & Dulčić 2010:27 [ref. 36649]). •Valid as Lophotus lacepede Giorna 1809 [sometimes as Bosc 1817] -- (Eschmeyer & Herald 1983:120 [ref. 9277], Heemstra 1986:403 [ref. 5660], Andrew et al. 1995:15 [ref. 38009], McEachran & Fechhelm 1998:684 [ref. 23897], Olney 1999:1971 [ref. 24751], Olney in Randall & Lim 2000:594 [ref. 25122], Hutchins 2001:26 [ref. 25847], Bilecenoğlu et al. 2002:47 [ref. 26753], Figueiredo et al. in Menezes et al. 2003:57 [ref. 27192], Olney 2003:955 [ref. 27007], Nelson et al. 2004:89 [ref. 27807], Mundy 2005:236 [ref. 28379] with author as Bosc, Craig et al. 2004:63 [ref. 28412], Tripepi et al. 2004:S150 [ref. 28446] as lacepedei, Fricke et al. 2007:61 [ref. 29533], Dulĉić & Soldo 2008:93 [ref. 30483], Bray 2008:298 [ref. 30620], Fricke et al. 2009:26 [ref. 30213], Roberts 2012:55 [ref. 32187], Page et al. 2013:90 [ref. 32708], Olney 2016:1936 [ref. 34579], Carneiro et al. 2019:127 [ref. 37250], Elbaraasi et al. 2019:93 [ref. 36864], Yapici 2019:15 [ref. 36891], Kovačić et al. 2020:17 [ref. 37519], Sutton et al. 2020:223 [ref. 37832]).
