Comments  Type designated by Bleeker 1862:6 [ref. 393]. Apparently Synodontes  Minding 1832:116 is the same. Synodontis  is regarded as a feminine Greek noun by some, but masculine by others -- conclusion uncertain; see Schraml 2011:23 [ref. 31313]. However, it should be known that all early authors, such as Günther, Boulenger, Vaillant, Pellegrin, Poll, Vinciguerra, Pfeffer and Peters all treated Synodontis  as masculine. Also the Code states that if a genus can be regarded as masuculine or feminine, then it is to be treated as masculine. Therefore, we treat Synodontis  as masculine, unlike Ferraris 2007.
