Cotylis Müller [J.] & Troschel [F. H.] in Müller 1843:297 Fem. Cotylis nuda Müller & Troschel 1843 (= Gobiesox punctulatus (Poey 1875)). Type by monotypy. Type not L. nudus Linnaeus (Briggs 1955:87 [ref. 637]). Müller & Troschel 1843:298 list the type as "Art: Cotylis nuda Müll. Trosch. (Cyclopterus nudus Bl. Schn.)" But Bloch & Schneider do not describe a species but refer to nudus Linnaeus. Using Article 67.13, the misapplication using Bloch & Schneider results in a new species, Cotylis nuda Müller & Troschel 1843. The locality given by Bloch & Schneider as India is in error according to Briggs, and the name is a synonym of the Caribbean Gobiesox punctulatus (Poey 1875). Since Müller & Troschel's name nuda has not been used, it can be regarded as a nomen oblitum. •Synonym of Gobiesox Lacepède 1800 -- (Briggs 1955:87 [ref. 637], Ferraris in Reis et al. 2003:511 [ref. 27061]).

According to Briggs (1955:141 [ref. 637]), Diademichthys and Coronichthys Herre Aug. 1942 are synonyms, Diademichthys appeared in May 1942 and is therefore the older name. •Valid as Diademichthys 1942 -- (Briggs 1955:141 [ref. 637], Yoshino in Masuda et al. 1984:342 [ref. 6441], Hutchins 2001:3548 [ref. 26291], Hoese & Bray 2006:1574 [ref. 29000], Conway et al. 2018:100 [ref. 36157], Fricke et al. 2019:262 [ref. 36673], Conway et al. 2020:889 [ref. 38030] in Diademichthyinae).
