Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy Polyodontidae was in widespread use (eg Hartman catalogue) until Pettibone (1989) determined that "Acoetidae Kinberg, 1856, based on Acoetes Audouin and Milne-Edwards, 1832, has priority and is not preoccupied, whereas Polyodontidae Augener, 1918, based on Polyodontes Renieri in Blainville, 1828, is preoccupied in Fishes by Polyodontidae Bonaparte, 1837, based on Polydon Schneider, 1801."  [details]
