japonicus, Heterodontus Miklouho-Maclay [N. de] & Macleay [W.] 1884:428, Pl. 20 [Proceedings of the Linnean Society of New South Wales v. 8 (pt 4); ref. 14399] Tokyo, Japan. Holotype (unique): AMS B.68. Probably not technically available for use with this authorship, secondarily preoccupied by and apparently the same as Heterodontus japonicus [Cestracion philippi japonicus] (Duméril 1865) [following existing usage probably would allow continued dating to Miklouho Maclay & Macleay 1884]. •Valid as Heterodontus japonicus Miklouho-Maclay & Macleay 1884 -- (Compagno 1984:158 [ref. 6474] but with older japonicus Duméril questionably in synonymy). •Valid as Heterodontus japonicus Miklouho-Maclay & Macleay 1884 -- (Senou & Masuda 1998:2 [ref. 24388], Compagno 1999:476 [ref. 25589], Nakabo 2000:117 [ref. 25086], Compagno in Randall & Lim 2000:578 [ref. 25122], Nakabo 2002:117 [ref. 26001], Choi et al. 2003:49, 468 [ref. 26218], Compagno 2001:39 [ref. 26323], Yamashita et al. 2012:120 [ref. 32408], Ebert et al. 2013:302 [ref. 33045], Dyldin 2015:44 [ref. 34524], Weigmann 2016:6 [ref. 34211], Sonoyama et al. 2020:5 [ref. 37637]).
