Acipenseridae.

Kessleria Jordan [D. S.] (ex Bogdanov) 1905:253 Fem. Scaphirhynchus fedtschenkoi Kessler 1872. Type by monotypy. Based on Kessleria of Bogdanov 1882:Caption (fig. 3) [ref. 499], which is not available, unpublished; see Fricke & Zhukov 2021:2 [ref. 38903]. Preoccupied by Kessleria Nowicki 1864 in Lepidoptera. Not replaced; see Myers 1940:35 [ref. 3118]. •Synonym of Pseudoscaphirhynchus Nikolski 1900 -- (Fricke & Zhukov 2021:2 [ref. 38903]). 1°Homonym.

Acipenseridae.

Parasinosturio (subgenus of Acipenser) Artyukin [E. N.] 1995:6 Masc. Established for Acipenser medirostris and A. transmontanus. Not available, no fixation of a type species after 1930 (Art. 13.3). Current status: Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Acipenseridae.

Pseudoscaphirhynchus Nikolskii [A. M.] 1900:257 Masc. Pseudoscaphirhynchus rossikowi Nikolskii 1900. Type by monotypy. On Official List (Opinion 971). •Valid as Pseudoscaphirhynchus Nikolskii 1900 -- (Bailey & Cross 1954:173 [ref. 5358], Mayden & Kuhajda 1996:241 [ref. 22395], Bemis et al. 1997:37 [ref. 22871], Birstein et al. 2002:287 [ref. 26021], Fricke & Zhukov 2021:3 [ref. 38903]). Current status: Valid as Pseudoscaphirhynchus Nikolskii 1900. Acipenseridae.

Scaphirhynchus Heckel [J. J.] 1836:71 Masc. Scaphirhynchus rafinesquii Heckel 1836. Type by monotypy. Appeared twice (earliest not researched); as above and as Heckel in Müller 1836:77, footnote [ref. 3060]. Several variant spellings and misprints. Scaphirhynchops Gill 1863 is an unneeded replacement, Scaphirhynchus not preoccupied. •Valid as Scaphirhynchus Heckel 1836 -- (Bailey & Cross 1954 [ref. 5358], Williams & Clemmer 1991 [ref. 19118], Mayden & Kuhajda 1996:241 [ref. 22395], Bemis et al. 1997:37 [ref. 22871], Birstein et al. 2002:287 [ref. 26021], Scott 2003:671 [ref. 26987]). Current status: Valid as Scaphirhynchus Heckel 1836. Acipenseridae.

Scaphyrhynchops Gill [T. N.] 1863:178 Masc. Accipenser platorynchus Rafinesque 1820. Type by being a replacement name. Appeared as "Scaphyrhynchops platyrhynchus, Gill (Scaphrhynchus rafinesquii, Heckel.)." Apparently an unneeded replacement for Scaphirhynchus Heckel 1836 (not preoccupied by Scaphorhynchus Wied 1831 in Aves), but this is unclear from text (see also Platygobio, apparently not proposed as a replacement name in the same list). If a replacement name then type is rafinesquii Heckel. See Bailey & Cross 1954:174 [ref. 5358] for variant spellings. •Synonym of Scaphirhynchus Heckel 1836. Current status: Synonym of Scaphirhynchus Heckel 1836. Acipenseridae.

Shipa (subgenus of Acipenser) Brandt [J. F.] 1869:113 Fem. Acipenser nudiventris Lovetsky 1828. Type by subsequent designation. As a subgenus of Acipenser with 2 species: A. shypa of Güldenstädt (not of Brandt and Ratzeburg) and Acipenser nudiventris Lovetski. Jordan 1919:354 [ref. 4904] gives type as A. schypa Eichwald = A. nudiventris Lovetsky; Jordan misspells genus as Schipa. Treated as feminine, Art. 30.2.4. •Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Current status: Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Acipenseridae.

Sinosturio Jaekel [O.] in Weigelt 1929:29 Masc. Acipenser dabryanus Duméril 1869. Type by original designation. Type species appeared as "Sinosturio cf. dabryanus". •Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Current status: Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Acipenseridae.

Sterleta Güldenstädt [J. A. von] 1772:533 Fem. Acipenser ruthenus Linnaeus 1758. Type by subsequent designation. Type listed by Jordan 1919:168 [ref. 2410] as above, but as nonbinomial. Actual is: "Sterleta: Acipenser rostro fubulato, recto, diametro oris quadruplo longiore; cirris vix ori propioribus; labiis integris." Two other similar taxa (Schypa and Seuruga) also appear on p. 533. Probably not available (non-binomial work), but only pp. 533-534 in this publication were examined. •In the synonymy of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Current status: Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Acipenseridae.

Sterletus Brandt [J. F.] & Ratzeburg [J. T. C.] 1833:3, 349 Masc. Acipenser ruthenus Linnaeus 1758. Type by monotypy. Original not examined; apparently as "Sterletae" (vernacular), a group within Acipenser; subsequent availability not researched. Objectively invalid; preoccupied by Sterletus Rafinesque 1820 in fishes. Also spelled Sterleta and Sterledus. •In the synonymy of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. 1°Homonym. Current status: Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Acipenseridae.

Sterletus (subgenus of Acipenser) Rafinesque [C. S.] 1820:248 Masc. Accipenser serotimus Rafinesque 1820. Type by subsequent designation. Type designated by Jordan & Gilbert (see note) Jordan 1917:113 [ref. 2407]. Also appeared in Rafinesque 1820:80 (Dec.) [ref. 3592]. Rafinesque's use of the spelling Accipenser for the subgenus is an unjustified emendation or misspelling. •Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Current status: Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Acipenseridae.

Sturio Rafinesque [C. S.] 1810:41, 58 Masc. Sturio vulgaris Rafinesque 1810 (= Acipenser sturio Linnaeus 1758). Type by monotypy. Rafinesque's vulgaris is an unneeded substitute for sturio Linnaeus. •Objective synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Current status: Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Acipenseridae.

Sturio Müller [J.] 1836:73 [9] Masc. On p. 9 of separate. Apparently no included species, and never validated. •In the synonymy of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Nomen Nudum. Current status: Synonym of Acipenser Linnaeus 1758. Acipenseridae.
