  Comment: Eschmeyer (personal communication, Feb-2003, and online Catalog of Fishes, 2003) notes that apparently no first First Reviser has been identified, so he is acting in that capacity. Since both spellings (coeruleopinnatus and caeruleopinnatus) appeared in the original publication, and both have been used in recent literature, the first spelling listed in the original publication (coeruleopinnatus) was chosen as the correct spelling
