auratus, Labrus Forster [J. R.] in Bloch & Schneider 1801:266 [M. E. Blochii, Systema Ichthyologiae; ref. 471] Queen Charlotte Sound, Marlborough Sounds, South Island, New Zealand. No types known. Based on "Sciaena aurata" in manuscript by Forster (Johann Reinhold Forster, 1729-1798, German explorer and naturalist of Cook's second voyage); see Forster 1844:307 [ref. 18092]. Schneider apparently did not see figure or specimen so authorship is regarded as Forster in Bloch & Schneider. •Valid as Pagrus auratus (Forster 1801) -- (Paulin et al. 1989:188 [ref. 24556], Paulin 1990:261 [ref. 15774], Yamada in Amaoka et al. 1990:277 [ref. 16024], Francis 1993:161 [ref. 25479], Randall et al. 1997:195 [ref. 25919], Johnson 1999:737 [ref. 25471], Hutchins 2001:35 [ref. 25847], Carpenter 2001:3002 [ref. 26104], Bray et al. 2006:1229 [ref. 29091]). •Valid as Chrysophrys auratus (Forster 1801) -- (Randall et al. 1990:195 [ref. 15987], Kuiter 1993:193 [ref. 23929], Gomon et al. 1994:600 [ref. 22532], Kuiter 1997:176 [ref. 25488], Gomon 2008:589 [ref. 30616], Trnski & Roberts 2015:1288 [ref. 34203], Hoschke et al. 2019:156 [ref. 36626], Parenti 2019:77 [ref. 36892]).
