 Comments
       
  Comment: Mecklenberg and Sheiko (2003) note that "Both Reinhardt (1836 [ref. 6587]) and Valenciennes (1836 [ref. 1005]) based their Lumpenus fabricii and Gunnellus fabricii, respectively, on Blennius lumpenus of Fabricius (non-Linnaean). We have not been able to independently determine which name was published earlier, but accept Reinhardt's name following Andriashev (1954:244 [ref. 6547]), who evidently is the first reviser (Art. 24.2); in his review of northern fishes of the USSR, Andriashev listed both names in his synonymy and selected the Reinhardt name. Makushok (1958:61 [ref. 2878]), in his treatise on the northern blennioids, did not mention Valenciennes but attributed Lumpenus fabricii to Reinhardt with the date of 1836. Andriashev (1954) and Makushok (1958) both gave the correct dates of publication for the critical Reinhardt papers. Authors attributing the name to Valenciennes or to Cuvier and Valenciennes may not have seen the Reinhardt 1836 paper (e.g., Jordan and Evermann 1898:2438 [ref. 2445]) or believed it dated to 1837 or 1838 (e.g., Makushok 1973:536 [ref. 6590]). Makushok's (1973) switch from Reinhardt to Valenciennes for L. fabricii evidently is attributable to a mistaken reinterpretation of the Reinhardt publication dates"
