Genera in the family or subfamily Leiognathidae: [ 16 ] records


Argylepes (subgenus of Siganus) Swainson [W.] 1839:247 Fem. Siganus (Argylepes) indica Swainson 1839. Type by monotypy. Misspelled Argyrlepes by Jordan 1919:200 [ref. 2410]. Argyrolepis Agassiz 1846:33 [ref. 64] is an unjustified emendation. •Synonym of Leiognathus Lacepède 1802 -- (Kottelat 2013:339 [ref. 32989]). Current status: Synonym of Leiognathus Lacepède 1802. Leiognathidae: Leiognathinae.

Aurigequula (subgenus of Leiognathus) Fowler [H. W.] 1918:17 Fem. Clupea fasciata Lacepède 1803. Type by original designation (also monotypic). •Synonym of Leiognathus Lacepède 1802 -- (James 1978:141 [ref. 5317], Jones 1985:571 [ref. 21842]). •Placed in Equula by Chakrabarty & Sparks 2008:5 [ref. 29788], corrected by Chakrabarty et al. 2009:149 [ref. 30295]. •Valid as Aurigequula Fowler 1918 -- (Chakrabarty et al. 2008:149 [ref. 32414], Chakrabarty et al. 2009:143 [ref. 30295], Chakrabarty et al. 2010:109 [ref. 31090], Abraham et al. 2011:13 [ref. 31311], Kottelat 2013:339 [ref. 32989], Sparks & Chakrabarty 2015:181 [ref. 33740], Fricke et al. 2018:189 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:87 [ref. 36273], Fricke et al. 2019:149 [ref. 36673]). Current status: Valid as Aurigequula Fowler 1918. Leiognathidae: Leiognathinae.

Deveximentum Fowler [H. W.] 1904:517 Neut. Zeus insidiator Bloch 1787. Type by original designation (also monotypic). Secutor is a replacement name for Equula, which is a synonym of Leiognathus according to Kottelat 2013:337 [ref. 32989]. •Synonym of Secutor Gistel 1848 -- (James 1978:165 [ref. 5317], Jones 1985:605 [ref. 21842], Mochizuki & Hayashi 1989:84 [ref. 20157]). •Valid as Deveximentum Fowler 1904 -- (Kottelat 2013:337 [ref. 32989], Sparks & Chakrabarty 2015:186 [ref. 33740], Motomura et al. 2017:121 [ref. 35490], Alavi-Yeganeh et al. 2021:1 [ref. 38052]).

Equula Cuvier [G.] 1815:462 Fem. Centrogaster equula of Gmelin 1788 (= Scomber equula Forsskål 1775). Type by absolute tautonymy. Cuvier stated (p. 463), "...je nommerai equula"; it was Cuvier's style in this article to begin generic names with a lower case letter. Chakrabaarty & Sparks 2008:5 [ref. 29788] treated a valid Equula but they had the wrong type-species, and the genus Equula is an objective synonym of Leiognathus [see also remarks under Aurigequula Fowler 1918]. •Valid as Equula Cuvier 1815 -- (Chakrabarty & Sparks 2008: 5 [ref. 29788] but with the wrong type species). •Synonym of Leiognathus Lacepède 1802 -- (Tortonese 1973:390 [ref. 7192], James 1978:141 [ref. 5317], Jones 1985:571 [ref. 21842], Kottelat 2013:339 [ref. 32989]). Current status: Synonym of Leiognathus Lacepède 1802. Leiognathidae: Leiognathinae.

Equulites (subgenus of Leiognathus) Fowler [H. W.] 1904:513 Masc. Leiognathus vermiculatus Fowler 1904. Type by original designation. •Synonym of Leiognathus Lacepède 1802 -- (Böhlke 1984:119 [ref. 13621], Jones 1985:571 [ref. 21842]). •Valid as Equulites Fowler 1904 -- (Chakrabarty & Sparks 2008:6 [ref. 29788], Kimura et al. 2008:204-205 [ref. 29614], Chakrabarty et al. 2010:15 [ref. 30812], Chakrabarty et al. 2010:110 [ref. 31090], Abraham et al. 2011:11 [ref. 31311], Golani et al. 2011:S75 [ref. 31436], Kottelat 2013:337 [ref. 32989], Chakrabarty & Sparks 2015:298 [ref. 33837] as a tribe Equulitini, Sparks & Chakrabarty 2015:186 [ref. 33740], Suzuki & Kimura 2017:1 [ref. 35231], Motomura et al. 2017:122 [ref. 35490], Fricke et al. 2018:189 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:88 [ref. 36273], Fricke et al. 2019:149 [ref. 36673]).

Gazza Rüppell [W. P. E. S.] 1835:3 Fem. Gazza equulaeformis Rüppell 1835. Type by monotypy. The name Gazzinae 2011 is unavailable; no "new" is shown with it. The tribes Gazzini, Eubleekerini and Nuchequulini in the same work [ref. 33778] apparently also need the addition of "new" associated with them -- suggestion of R. van der Laan, Apr. 2014. But these changes were made in Apr. 2015 [ref. 33837]. •Valid as Gazza Rüppell 1835 -- (James 1978:168 [ref. 5317], Yabumoto et al. 1984 [ref. 6728], Uyeno & Yabumoto in Masuda et al. 1984:159 [ref. 6441], James 1985:397 [ref. 12861], Jones 1985:568 [ref. 21842], Smith 1986:620 [ref. 5712], Kimura et al. 2000:1 [ref. 24478], Yamashita & Kimura 2001:164 [ref. 25380], Woodland et al. 2001:2794 [ref. 26095], Kimura et al. 2003:221 [ref. 27212], Ataur Rahman 2003:362 [ref. 31338], Ikejima et al. 2004:904 [ref. 27755], Sparks & Dunlap 2004:2 [ref. 27928], Hoese & Bray 2006:1177 [ref. 29000], Chakrabarty & Sparks 2008:2 [ref. 29788], Chakrabarty et al. 2010:113 [ref. 31090], Abraham et al. 2011:16 [ref. 31311], Jawad & Al-mamry 2013:3 [ref. 32492], Kottelat 2013:338 [ref. 32989], Chakrabarty & Sparks 2015:298 [ref. 33837] as a tribe Gazzini, Motomura et al. 2017:124 [ref. 35490], Fricke et al. 2018:190 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:88 [ref. 36273]).

Secutor Gistel [J.] 1848:IX Masc. Scomber equula Forskål 1775. Type by being a replacement name. Unexplained replacement for Equula Cuvier 1815 (see Jordan 1919:336 [ref. 2409]).
