Comments on Taxonomy
NOTE: "Misidentifications" cited by Sublette, et al. (ref. #35) often refer to proper identifications of specimens as per available information "of the day." However, later investigation showed inadequacies in the knowledge and assumptions of that time. Therefore, today's interpretation of the same fish would yield a different species name *43*.
