Caligus russellii Kurien, 1950 

Kurien (1950) described C. russellii  as new a species of Caligus  taken from the scorpionfish, Pterois  russelii Bennett, 1831 at Trivandrum in India. However, Kurian (1949) had previously described the same specimens as new, under the name Caligus pterois  . The description was published as an abstract in the proceedings of the 35 th Indian Science Congress held in Patna in 1948, but it satisfies the “criteria to be met” to be regarded as validly published under the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (Article 8.1) and it cannot be classified as “issued primarily to participants at” the congress (see Article 9.9) since it was published after the congress took place. Given that the first description contained the name and sufficient description to characterise the taxon, the name Caligus pterois Kurian, 1949  has priority and Caligus russellii Kurien, 1950  is here treated as a junior objective synonym.
