Mugilidae 

* Chelon labrosus  ( Risso, 1827)—Thicklip grey mullet

* Liza aurata  ( Risso, 1810)—Golden grey mullet

Liza ramado ( Risso, 1810)  —Thinlip mullet

Risso (1810: 344) originally described this species under the name Mugil cephalus ramado  . In a later publication ( Risso, 1827: 390), he spelled the species name ramada. Subsequent authors used the spelling of Risso (1827); only Fricke (1999: 43) used the original name as Liza ramado  . Eschmeyer (2004) suggests using the original spelling. Specimen needed for confirmation.

Mugil cephalus Linnaeus, 1758  —Flathead grey mullet

We consider this a very doubtful record.

Oedalechilus labeo (Cuvier, 1829)  —Boxlip mullet

Recorded by Wirtz (1994: 52), with a photo of the species taken at Madeira. Record confirmed by specimens examined, SMNS 25013 (4, Seixal).
