lineatus, Cheilodipterus Lacepède [B. G. E.] (ex Commerson) 1801:540, 543, Pl. 34 (fig. 1) [Histoire naturelle des poissons (Lacepède) v. 3; ref. 2710] Mauritius, Mascarenes, southwestern Indian Ocean. Commerson material: MNHN 0000-9243 (skin). Type catalog: Bauchot & Desoutter 1987:95 [ref. 12478] -- based on a drawing (and not the Commerson specimen). Secondarily preoccupied in Cheilodipterus by Perca lineatus (Forsskål 1775); but see Fricke 1999:233 [ref. 24106]. Genus misspelled Chelodipterus on p. 543. Considered by authors as a secondary homonym of Perca lineata of Forsskål 1775, which is, however, not a species independent from Perca lineata Linnaeus 1758 but a misidentification (see Fricke 1999:233 [ref. 24106], Fricke 2008:30 [ref. 30182], Fricke et al. 2009:51 [30213]). Though Cheilodipterus lineatus Lacepède 1801 would be the valid senior synonym, most authors are using Cheilodipterus macrodon (Lacepède 1802) as valid. •Synonym of Cheilodipterus macrodon (Lacepède 1802) -- (Gon 1993:30 [ref. 21133], T. Fraser, pers. comm. 9/2000, Gon & Randall 2003:32 [ref. 26750]). •Valid as Cheilodipterus lineatus Lacepède 1801 -- (Gon 1986:555 [ref. 5657], Allen & Swainston 1988:64 [ref. 25477], Paxton et al. 1989:552 [ref. 12442], Goren & Dor 1994:31 [ref. 25356], Fricke 1999:232 [ref. 24106], Fricke et al. 2009:51 [ref. 30213], Fricke et al. 2014:70 [ref. 33932], Mabuchi et al. 2015:43 [ref. 34429], Fricke et al. 2019:131 [ref. 36673], Kuiter & Kozawa 2019:55 [ref. 36965]). Current status: Valid as Cheilodipterus lineatus Lacepède 1801. Apogonidae: Apogoninae. Distribution: Red Sea; Indo-West Pacific: East Africa and KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) east to Marshall Islands and Pitcairn Group, north to southern Japan, south to Western Australia, New South Wales (Australia), Lord Howe Island, Tonga and Rapa. Habitat: marine.
