Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Placed in family Scorpaenidae in Eschmeyer et al., 1979.
Type species Pelor japonicum Cuvier in Cuvier and Valenciennes, 1829, by original designation (Eschmeyer et al., 1979).
The generic name Pelor Cuvier is preoccupied by Pelor Dejean, 1828 [based on unpublished table of Bonelli], a genus of carabid beetles. Jordan and Starks (1904: 158) proposed the generic name Inimicus to accommodate forms like Pelor japonicum that do not possess filamentous upper pectoral rays. They wrongly assumed the type-species of Pelor was filamentosum, the only species then known to have the upper pectoral rays filamentous; they did not propose the name Inimicus as a replacement name for Pelor. The type-species of Pelor was established by Cuvier when he first proposed the name (1829) as Scorpaena didactyla (which Cuvier preferred to list under his own new name obscurum). Gill (1905) also wrongly assumed the type-species of Pelor, and hence his replacement generic name Simopias, was filamentosum and therefore confused his subgeneric designations. Inimicus, by reason of priority, takes precedence over Simopias Eschmeyer et al., 1979. [details]
