  Comment: From Eschmeyer 2015. Monochirus Oken [L.] (ex Cuvier) 1817:1182a Masc. Pleuronectes microchirus Delaroche 1809. Type by monotypy. Based on "Monochires" Cuvier 1816:223 [ref. 993]. See Gill 1903:966. Synonym of Microchirus Bonaparte 1833. Current status: Synonym of Microchirus Bonaparte 1833. Soleidae  
    Monochirus Oken 1817, if considered an available name, would be a junior homonym of Monochirus Rafinesque 1814
