maculatus, Chaetodon Bloch [M. E.] 1795:104, Pl. 427 (fig. 2) [Naturgeschichte der ausländischen Fische v. 9; ref. 464] Coromandel, India [in error]. Lectotype: ZMB 2783. Paralectotypes: ZMB 33118 [ex ZMB 2783] (2). Type catalog: Paepke 1999:62-63 [ref. 24282]. Objectively invalid; preoccupied by Chaetodon maculatus Scopoli 1788, which is an unused senior synonym of Plectorhinchus picus (Cuvier 1830) [Haemulidae] -- P. Parenti, pers comm. 7/02.
