Eschmeyer (personal communication, May 2003) notes that this was "originally as *kröyeri* [not as *kröyerii as in Eschmeyer et al. 1998]; according to Article 220.127.116.11 of the Code, if the name is not based on a German word, the "e" should not be added; correct is apparently *Scopelus kroyeri*"
ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
