Species in the genus Cociella: [ 15 ] records


clavulatus, Platycephalus Cantor [T. E.] 1849:1020 [38] [Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal v. 18 (pt 2); ref. 715] Sea of Penang, Malaysia. Holotype (unique): ?BMNH 1860.3.19.270. On p. 38 of separate. •Synonym of Cociella punctata (Cuvier 1829) -- (Nagao & Imamura 2015:130 [ref. 38908], Imamura & Aungtonya 2020:28 [ref. 38146]). Current status: Synonym of Cociella punctata (Cuvier 1829). Platycephalidae. Habitat: marine.

crocodilus, Platycephalus Tilesius [W. G. von] 1814:no page number, Pl. 59 (fig. 2) [Atlas zur Reis; ref. 19304] No locality stated [Nagasaki, Japan]. No types known. Not available, as species name was given in cyrillic letters only -- (Imamura & Yoshino 2009:309 [ref. 30527] dated 1812). See Platycephalus crocodilus Cuvier 1829 which is the first available usage of the name. •In the synonymy of Cociella crocodilus (Cuvier 1829) -- (Imamura & Yoshino 2009:310 [ref. 30527], Kottelat 2013:317 [ref. 32989]).

crocodilus, Platycephalus Cuvier [G.] (ex Tilesius) in Cuvier & Valenciennes 1829:256 [Histoire naturelle des poissons v. 4; ref. 998] No locality stated [Nagasaki, Japan]. No types preserved. First available usage of the name Platycephalus crocodilus Tilesius 1814, which was given in cyrillic letters only and not available -- (Imamura & Yoshino 2009:310 [ref. 30527] as crocodila). The specific name is apparently an indeclinable noun, so the correct name is Cociella crocodilus.
