commerson, Lophius Latreille [P. A.] 1804:74 [ ref. 17490] Mauritius, Mascarenes, southwestern Indian Ocean. Type: MNHN A-4623. Type catalog: Pietsch et al. 1987:141-142 [ref. 6339]. Apparently predates Shaw 1804; Pietsch 1986:367 [ref. 5704] gives March 1804 for Latreille and June 1804 for Shaw. [Should be spelled commerson and not commersoni]. Neotype designated by Dor 1984:56 [ref. 29757] but that designation invalid (not a revisional work). •See Lophius commerson Anonymous 1798. Current status: Synonym of Antennarius commerson (Anonymous 1798). Antennariidae. Habitat: marine.
