The family-group names of animals (superfamily, family, subfamily, supertribe, tribe and subtribe) are regulated by the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Family names are particularly important because they are among the most widely used of all technical animal names. Apart from using the correct family-group name according to the Code, it is also important to use one unique universal name (with a fixed spelling) to avoid confusion. We have compiled a list of family-group names for… Expand

Tables and Topics from this paper

The Tree of Life and a New Classification of Bony Fishes
TLDR
A comprehensive molecular phylogeny for bony fishes that includes representatives of all major lineages and the order Perciformes, considered by many a polyphyletic taxonomic waste basket, is defined for the first time as a monophyletic group in the global phylogeny. Expand
Review of the family Rivulidae (Cyprinodontiformes, Aplocheiloidei) and a molecular and morphological phylogeny of the annual fish genus Austrolebias Costa 1998
TLDR
The results confirm the monophyly of the genus and of some subgeneric clades already diagnosed, but propose new relationships among them and their species composition, particularly in the subgenus Acrolebias. Expand
Phylogenetic classification of bony fishes
TLDR
This version of the phylogenetic classification of bony fishes is substantially improved, providing resolution for more taxa than previous versions, based on more densely sampled phylogenetic trees. Expand
The origin and biogeographic diversification of fishes in the family Poeciliidae
TLDR
It is shown that the Poeciliinae family originated in South America, but its major diversification dates to a later colonization of Central America, and additional colonizations among South, Central and North America and the Caribbean are resolved. Expand
Name changes and additions to the southern African freshwater fish fauna
TLDR
Changes made to the scientific names of southern African freshwater fishes since 2001 are explained and discussed and the introduction of the family names Alestidae and Nothobranchiidae is discussed. Expand
Systematics of Damselfishes
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the damselfishes are examined herein using sequence data from five mitochondrial and three nuclear loci to reconstruct the phylogeny of pomacentrids via maximum likelihood, corroborating some conclusions drawn by recent studies but contradicting others. Expand
Annotated checklist of the living sharks, batoids and chimaeras (Chondrichthyes) of the world, with a focus on biogeographical diversity.
  • S. Weigmann
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of fish biology
  • 2016
TLDR
This checklist represents the first global checklist of chondrichthyans to include information on maximum size, geographic and depth distributions, as well as comments on taxonomically problematic species and recent and regularly overlooked synonymizations. Expand
Phylogenetic classification of extant genera of fishes of the order Cypriniformes (Teleostei: Ostariophysi).
TLDR
An updated compilation of the membership of genera to suprageneric taxa based on the latest phylogenetic classifications is provided and a new taxon is proposed: subfamily Esominae within Danionidae, for the genus Esomus. Expand
An updated Checklist of the Marine fishes from Syria with emphasis on alien species
An updated checklist of marine ichthyofauna that are recorded to date, from Syrian marine water including 297 species (belonging to 220 genera, 111 families, 36 orders, and 3 classes) is presented.Expand
G. J. Billberg's (1833) 'On the ichthyology, and description of some new fish species of the pipefish genus Syngnathus'.
Gustaf Johan Billberg's review of ichthyology, published in Swedish in 1833 in the Linnéska samfundets handlingar, mentions 92 fish taxa at genus and species level, 41 of which represent new taxa,Expand

On the formation of family-group names and gender of genera based on the stem— butis (Teleostei: Perciformes: Gobioidei)
TLDR
The purpose of this note is to clarify the spelling of this family group name, and, by extension, of other current or potential family-group names based on the stem—butis (buti-singular), a decorative, circular design woven, embroidered or printed on cloth, and is particularly common in sari fabric. Expand
Relationships of fishes of the labrid tribe Hypsigenyini
TLDR
Members of the Bodianinae tribe have a large number of primitive characters relative to the family Labridae and appear to be more closely related to species currently placed in the family Scaridae than to most other labrids. Expand
The distinction between family-series and class-series nomina in zoological nomenclature, with emphasis on the nomina created by Batsch (1788, 1789) and on the higher nomenclature of turtles
The Code only regulates the scientific names or nomina of zoological taxa from the rank subspecies to the rank superfamily, but not those of taxa at ranks above the latter (class-series nomina). ItExpand
Phylogeny of the family Characidae (Teleostei: Characiformes): from characters to taxonomy
TLDR
Taxonomic implications of the proposed classification and the position of the incertae sedis genera within Characidae are discussed, and a discussion of the phylogenetic information of the characters used in the classical systematics of theCharacidae is provided. Expand
Relationships and position of the genus Neozoarces of the subfamily neozoarcinae in the system of the suborder Zoarcoidei (Pisces, Perciformes) by molecular-genetic data
TLDR
The results of investigations confirm the viewpoint suggested by Makushok (1961) who included, for the first time, the subfamily Neozoarcinae to the family Zoarcidae on the basis of comparative morphological investigation of these groups. Expand
Checklist of catfishes, recent and fossil (Osteichthyes: Siluriformes), and catalogue of siluriform primary types
TLDR
A checklist of Recent and fossil catfishes (Order Siluriformes) is presented, summarizing taxonomic literature published through 2005, and one new name is proposed herein: Clariallabes teugelsi, as a replacement for Clarias (Allabenchelys) dumerili longibarbis David & Poll, 1937. Expand
Osteology, phylogeny, and higher classification of the fishes of the order Plectognathi (Tetraodontiformes)
The osteologjof over 160 species of fossil and Recent plectognath or tetraodontiform fishes is described and illustrated in relation to the supposed phylogeny and proposed higher classiflcationExpand
The world's smallest vertebrate species of the genus Paedocypris: a new family of freshwater fishes and the sister group to the world's most diverse clade of freshwater fishes (Teleostei: Cypriniformes).
TLDR
Strong evidence exists for the new phylogenetic placement of Paedocypris as the sister group to the most diverse clade of freshwater fishes, and attempts to theorize more broadly as to evolutionary processes of miniaturization would be premature without more complete taxon sampling. Expand
Sharks of the Order Carcharhiniformes
TLDR
This work is one of the most comprehensive modern anatomical and phylogenetic studies on cartilaginous fishes available and will become an essential reference not only for researchers on carcharhinoids but also for those who study other families of sharks and for paleontologists interested in this ancient group of fishes.
