  Comment: Eschmeyer (online Catalog of Fishes, 2003) notes, of Buenia affinis Iljin 1930, that "Based on Art. 70(b)(i) and Art. 11(i), Miller 1973... suggests that Iljin established a new nominal species as above in establishing the type species of Buenia (misidentified type species, not Gobius affinis Kolombatovic 1881). There is no evidence that this was a deliberate use of a misidentification (see Art. 11(i)), so Buenia affinis was not established. The Code required that the problem be submitted to the ICZN to establish the type species, and that was not done. We assume that there is a valid species, but its name and authorship is not yet clarified, but it can be called Buenia affinis Iljin 1930 until properly established"
