Genus Paracetopsis Bleeker, 1862

talis, a species whose holotype is also the neotype of the type species of Paracetopsis Bleeker. As a consequence of the type species of the two nominal genera sharing the same name-bearing type, Cetopsogiton is an objective junior synonym of Paracetopsis Bleeker (1862) ( International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1999: 64; Article 61.3.3).

Paracetopsis Bleeker, 1862b: 16 [type species: Paracetopsis bleekeri, Bleeker, 1862 , by original designation; Gender Feminine].

Paracetopsis Eigenmann & Bean, 1907: 615 [type species: Cetopsis occidentalis, Steindachner, 1880 , by original designation; Gender Feminine; preoccupied by Paracetopsis Bleeker, 1862 and replaced by Cetopsogiton Eigenmann & Bean , in Eigenmann, 1910].

Cetopsogiton Eigenmann & Bean , in Eigenmann, 1910: 398 [type species: Cetopsis occidentalis, Steindachner , by being a replacement name; Gender Masculine; replacement for Paracetopsis Eigenmann & Bean, 1907 preoccupied by Paracetopsis Bleeker, 1862 ]

Diagnosis. Paracetopsis can be distinguished from all other genera in the Cetopsinae by the combination of the possession of a vomerine tooth patch with two or more rows of teeth and a medial gap between the contralateral components of the tooth patch.

Remarks. Paracetopsis bleekeri was published by Bleeker (1862b) in a paper within which Bleeker listed the generic name as Paracetopsis Guich [=Guichenot]. There is no indication that Paracetopsis was ever published by Guichenot (see Eschmeyer, 1998) and, thus, both the generic and species names must be credited to Bleeker.

Paracetopsis Eigenmann & Bean (1907) is preoccupied by Paracetopsis Bleeker (1862) . The replacement name, Cetopsogiton , that was proposed by Eigenmann & Bean (in Eigenmann, 1910) has as its type species Cetopsis occiden-
