endrachtensis, Atherina Quoy [J. R. C.] & Gaimard [J. P.] 1825:334 [Voyage autour du monde; ref. 3574] Chiens-Marin, รก la terre d'Endracht [Shark Bay], Western Australia [apparently erroneous, probably New Guinea or Waigeo Island]. Lectotype: MNHN A-4385. Paralectotypes: MNHN A-4396 (1). Type catalog: Blanc & Hureau 1971:705-706 [ref. 21541] with syntypes. See Kimura et al. 2001:171 [ref. 25381] for remarks on type and locality; they suggest New Guinea or Waigeo. Apparently named for the presumed type locality Eendrachtsland or Eendraghtsland [the old Dutch name for Australia], and the name should have been spelled eendrachtensis or eendraghtensis; based on prevailing usage, the name endrachtensis can be used. If syntypes, then they are MNHN A-4385-86 (2).
