Mystus Scopoli, 1777 (Osteichthyes, Siluriformes): usage conserved by designation of Bagrus halepensis Valenciennes in Cuvier & Valenciennes, 1840 as the type species
Abstract

The Commission has set aside all previous fixations of type species for the genus Mystus Scopoli, 1777, before that by Jordan & Everman (1917), thus conserving current usage of the names Mystus Scopoli, 1777 and Polydorus Bleeker, 1862 for two genera of bagrid and doradid catfishes.
