bivium, Scyllium Smith [A.] in Müller & Henle 1838:8 [Systematische Beschreibung der Plagiostomen; ref. 3069] Cape of Good Hope, South Africa. Holotype: BMNH 1851.10.26.148 (stuffed). Apparently appeared in Smith 1831, South African Quarterly J., 1831 (no. 5) and Gov't J. of the Cape, 1 Nov. 1828 [not researched]. Appeared as name only and not available in Smith 1838:85 [ref. 4034]. For comments on locality see Springer 1979:118 [ref. 4175]. Evidently Smith alone was responsible for the description, so authorship is regarded as Smith in Müller & Henle, see Jones et al. 2015 [ref. 34086]. •Valid as Schroederichthys bivius (Smith 1838) (often seen as Müller & Henle 1838) -- (Compagno 1984:352 [ref. 6846], Menni 1986:425 [ref. 11487], Pequeño 1989:13 [ref. 14125], López et al. 1996:13 [ref. 23681], Compagno 1999:480 [ref. 25589], Soto 2001:37, 41 [ref. 26636], Soto 2001:63, 68 [ref. 26637], Gadig & Gomes in Menezes et al. 2003:22 [ref. 27192], Mabragaña et al. 2011:table S2 [ref. 31800], Weigmann 2016:42 [ref. 34211], Nión et al. 2016:20 [ref. 35565], Spier et al. 2018:4 [ref. 36103]).
