Remark Listed in <144> as Lethrinus aurolineatus nov. sp., but recalled in an erratum distributed with the issue of the periodical. The erratum slip is probably not valid for the Code of Zoological Nomenclature, so technically Fourmanoir has described a speceis there. However, the name L. aurolineatus was already used by Macleay in 1883, for a species placed now in synonymy with L. nebulosus (Forsskål 1775). [details]
