Name History   Cichlasoma (subgenus of Plesiops) Swainson [W.] 1839:230 [ref. 4303]. Neut. Labrus bimaculatus Linnaeus 1758. Type by designation of the ICZN in Opinion 1954. As Cichlaurus on p. 173; Swain 1882:284 [ref. 5966] acts as first reviser selecting Cichlasoma (see Bailey 1957:303 [ref. 6478]). Cychlasoma is a misspelling; Cichlosoma Regan 1905:61 [ref. 3622] is an unjustified emendation. For a discussion of problems involving the type species, see Kullander 1983:9 [ref. 8319]. However, Opinion 1954 (Case 2905) set aside previous type species designations and designated Labrus bimaculatus Linnaeus 1758 as the type species of Cichlasoma, thereby insuring that Cichlasoma is a genus of cichlid fishes.
