Dinemus Poey [F.] 1860:161 Masc. Dinemus venustus Poey 1860. Type by monotypy. •Synonym of Polymixia Lowe 1836 -- (Nielsen 1973:336 [ref. 6885], Woods & Sonoda 1973:269 [ref. 6899], Kotlyar 1996:63 [ref. 23292]). Current status: Synonym of Polymixia Lowe 1836. Polymixiidae.

Nemobrama Valenciennes [A.] 1837:Pl. 8 Fem. Nemobrama webbii Valenciennes 1837. Type by monotypy. In text in 1843:40, plate published in May 1837; spelled consistently as Nemobrama. Misspelled Nemabrama by Jordan et al. 1930:234 [ref. 6476]. Nemobrama dates to the plate published May 1837 [text not published until 1844], making it older than Polymixia; we suggest retaining the widely-used Polymixia as a nomen protectum under Art. 23.9.2. •Synonym of Polymixia Lowe 1836 -- (Nielsen 1973:336 [ref. 6885], Woods & Sonoda 1973: 269 [ref. 6899] as Nemabrama, Kotlyar 1996:63 [ref. 23292] as Nemabrama).
