lineata, Perca Forsskål [P. S.] 1775:42 [Descriptiones animalium (Forsskål); ref. 1351] Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Red Sea. No types known. Apparently independent of Perca lineata Linnaeus 1758 and preoccupied by P. lineata Linnaeus; but Fricke 1999:233 [ref. 24106] disagrees and regards Perca lineata Forsskål as not independent of Linnaeus and therefore objectively invalid. Gon & Randall 2003:31 [ref. 26750] use Cheilodipterus lineatus and cite Art. 23.9.5 but this article requires a petition. Also in Bonnaterre 1788:127 [ref. 4940]. Authorship according to Fricke 2008:30 [ref. 30182]. •Treated as valid as Cheilodipterus lineatus by Gon 1993:27 [ref. 21133] but through a misinterpretation of Art. 57h(i); the valid name for this taxon is Cheilodipterus arabicus Gmelin 1789. •Incorrectly valid as Cheilodipterus lineatus (Forsskål 1775) -- (Gon & Randall 2003:31 [ref. 26750], Heemstra & Heemstra 2004:187 [ref. 28072]). •Synonym of Cheilodipterus arabicus (Gmelin 1789) -- (Randall 1995:162 [ref. 22896], Fricke 2008:30 [ref. 30182]). 1°Homonym. Current status: Synonym of Cheilodipterus arabicus (Gmelin 1789). Apogonidae: Apogoninae. Habitat: marine.
