lagocephalus, Labrax Pallas [P. S.] 1810:384, Pl. 22 (fig. 1) [Mémoires de l'Académie Impériale des Sciences de St. Pétersbourg v. 2; ref. 3350] Kuril Islands. Lectotype: ZMB 11371 (dry). Type catalog: Paepke & Fricke 1992:281 [ref. 19946]. Also described in Pallas 1814:277 [ref. 3351]. Lectotype selected by Svetovidov 1978:26 [ref. 6025]. The species lagocephalus and superciliosus were described in the same work; Quast (1964 [ref. 26217]) apparently is the first reviser, selecting lagocephalus over superciliosus; superciliosus is sometimes treated as a separate species (see Mecklenburg & Eschmeyer 2003:3 [ref. 27292]). Type information: Svetovidov 1978:24 [ref. 6025]. •Valid as Hexagrammos lagocephalus (Pallas 1810) -- (Rutenberg 1962:51 [ref. 24028], Eschmeyer & Herald 1983:155 [ref. 9277], Amaoka in Masuda et al. 1984:320 [ref. 6441], Kendall & Vinter 1984:12 [ref. 26201], Lindberg & Krasyukova 1987:130 [ref. 15964], Matarese et al. 1989:354 [ref. 26885], McAllister 1990:191 [ref. 14674], Shinohara 1994:79 [ref. 21519], Cheng & Zhou 1997:427 [ref. 26385], Sokolovskaya et al. 1998:9 [ref. 24670], Nakabo 2000:625 [ref. 25086], Sheiko & Fedorov 2000:26 [ref. 25650], Mecklenburg et al. 2002:395 [ref. 25968], Nakabo 2002:625 [ref. 26001], Parin et al. 2002:S66 [ref. 28300], Mecklenburg & Eschmeyer 2003:4 [ref. 27292], Fedorov et al. 2003:62 [ref. 27579], Nelson et al. 2004:118 [ref. 27807], Page et al. 2013:120 [ref. 32708], Parin et al. 2014:228 [ref. 33547], Pietsch & Orr 2015:36 [ref. 34694], Tohkairin et al. 2015:6 [ref. 35331], Kells et al. 2016:158 [ref. 35888], Dyldin & Orlov 2017:60 [ref. 35138], Burton & Lea 2019:64 [ref. 37205]).
