  Comment: Epithet originally published as d'orbignyi in text but listed as Toenura orbignyi on figure caption; use as dorbignyi or orbignyi still unresolved. First reviser not researched if earlier than Carvalho et al. in Reis et al. 2003. Current usage may result in using orbignyi (Eschmeyer, Catalog of Fish, 2014)
