Genera in the family or subfamily Lophiidae: [ 13 ] records


Batrachus Klein [J. T.] 1776:202 Masc. Not available, published in a work that does not conform to the principle of binominal nomenclature. •In the synonymy of Lophius Linnaeus 1758 -- (Monod & Le Danois 1973:659 [ref. 7223], Lindberg et al. 1997:208 [ref. 23547]). Suppressed. Current status: Synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758. Lophiidae.

Batrachus Walbaum [J. J.] (ex Klein) 1792:580 Masc. Batrachus Walbaum (ex Klein) 1792:580 [ref. 4572]. Not available, published in a part of work rejected for nomenclatural purposes in Opinion 21 (1938). Based on Klein 1742:15 [ref. 30141]. •In the synonymy of Lophius Linnaeus 1758. Current status: Synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758. Lophiidae.

Chirolophius Regan [C. T.] 1903:279 Masc. Lophius naresi G√ľnther 1880. Type by subsequent designation. Type apparently designated first by Jordan 1920:505 [ref. 4905]. •Synonym of Lophiodes Goode & Bean 1896 -- (Caruso 1981:524 [ref. 5169], Castellanos-Galindo et al. 2006:206 [ref. 28944]). Current status: Synonym of Lophiodes Goode & Bean 1896. Lophiidae.

Conomus Rafinesque [C. S.] 1815:92 As "Conomus R. sp. do.", meaning a new genus name by Rafinesque for a species in a preceding genus, and presumably for a species of Lophius. Unavailable, name only. •In the synonymy of Lophius Linnaeus 1758 -- (Lindberg et al. 1997:208 [ref. 23547]). Nomen Nudum. Current status: Synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758. Lophiidae.

Discolophius Fowler [H. W.] 1943:333 Masc. Lophius gastrophysus Miranda Ribeiro 1915. Type by original designation (also monotypic). •Synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758 -- (Caruso 1983 [ref. 5168], Lindberg et al. 1997:208 [ref. 23547]). Current status: Synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758. Lophiidae.

Lophidius Rafinesque [C. S.] 1815:92 Masc. Lophius piscatorius Linnaeus 1758. As "Lophidius R. Lophius L." Style of Rafinesque in this work indicates that this is his substitute name for Lophius Linnaeus 1758. In that context it is an available (unneeded) replacement name. •Objective synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758 -- (Lindberg et al. 1997:208 [ref. 23547]). Current status: Synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758. Lophiidae.

Lophioides Minding [J.] 1832:57 Italicized, but a vernacular used at the family level based on style; also applies to several other names in this work. Not available. Lophiidae.

Lophiomus Gill [T. N.] 1883:552 Masc. Lophius setigerus Vahl 1797. Type by original designation (also monotypic). •Valid as Lophiomus Gill 1883 -- (Caruso 1983 [ref. 5168], Nakabo in Masuda et al. 1984:102 [ref. 6441], Caruso 1986:365 [ref. 6290] dated 1893, Paxton et al. 1989:274 [ref. 12442], Lindberg et al. 1997:204 [ref. 23547], Caruso 1999:2006 [ref. 24765], Paxton et al. 2006:635 [ref. 28994], Ho & Shao 2007:29 [ref. 29146], Gomon 2008:362 [ref. 30616], Ho et al. 2011:1722 [ref. 31638], Shinohara et al. 2011:41 [ref. 31715], Mukhametov & Orlov 2011:56 [ref. 32453], Parin et al. 2014:184 [ref. 33547], Golani & Fricke 2018:37 [ref. 36273]).

Lophiopsis Guichenot [A.] 1867:105 [23] Fem. Lophius vomerinus Valenciennes 1837. Type by original designation (also monotypic). Guichenot also used the vernacular Lophiopside, but latinized on p. 105 [separate p. 23] as Lophiopsis; Jordan's 1919:345 [ref. 4904] Lophiopsides is an incorrect subsequent spelling. •Synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758 -- (Caruso 1983 [ref. 5168], Lindberg et al. 1997:208 [ref. 23547]). Current status: Synonym of Lophius Linnaeus 1758. Lophiidae.

Lophius Linnaeus [C.] 1758:236 Masc. Lophius piscatorius Linnaeus 1758. Type by subsequent designation. Type designated by Jordan & Gilbert 1883:844 [ref. 2476]. On Official List (Opinion 77, Direction 56). Also appeared as new (sensu Artedi) in Billberg 1833:52, 53 [ref. 34146]; see Kullander 2016:111 [ref. 34147]. •Valid as Lophius Linnaeus 1758 -- (Monod & Le Danois 1973:659 [ref. 7223], Caruso 1983 [ref. 5168], Nakabo in Masuda et al. 1984:102 [ref. 6441], Caruso in Whitehead et al. 1986:1362 [ref. 13677], Caruso 1986:365 [ref. 6290], Lindberg et al. 1997:208 [ref. 23547], Everly 2002:393 [ref. 26185], Caruso 2003:1044 [ref. 27013], Ho & Shao 2007:21 [ref. 29146], Lipej & Dulčić 2010:32 [ref. 36649], Mecklenburg et al. 2011:121 [ref. 31212], Shinohara et al. 2011:41 [ref. 31715], Mukhametov & Orlov 2011:56 [ref. 32453], Parin et al. 2014:184 [ref. 33547], Bañón et al. 2016:318 [ref. 34397], Fricke et al. 2018:87 [ref. 35805], Fricke et al. 2019:71 [ref. 36673]).

Pyrenophorus (subgenus of Chirolophius) Le Danois [Y.] 1975:75 Masc. Chirolophius kempi Norman 1935. Not available from Le Danois, after 1930 without type designation (Art. 13.3). Appeared in Zoological Record for 1975, Pisces, p. 508 (published in 1980) but with anonymous authorship. Probably dates to Pietsch et al. 1987:133 [ref. 6339] with type as above. For authorship, see discussion in Appendix A in Eschmeyer 1990 [ref. 20647] (Art. 13.3); if that interpretation of the Code is correct, then the genus Pyrenophorus is Pietsch, Bauchot & Desoutter 1987. •Synonym of Lophiodes Goode & Bean 1896 -- (Castellanos-Galindo et al. 2006:206 [ref. 28944]). Current status: Synonym of Lophiodes Goode & Bean 1896. Lophiidae.

Sladenia Regan [C. T.] 1908:250 Fem. Sladenia gardineri Regan 1908.
