Name History   Equula Cuvier [G.] 1815:462 [ref. 1019]. Centrogaster equula of Gmelin 1788 (= Scomber equula Forsskål 1775). Type by absolute tautonymy. Cuvier stated (p. 463), "...je nommerai equula"; it was Cuvier's style in this article to begin generic names with a lower case letter. Chakrabaarty & Sparks 2008:5 [ref. 29788] treated a valid Equula but they had the wrong type-species, and the genus Equula is an objective synonym of Leiognathus. The error will be corrected (P. Chakrabarty, pers. comm. and manuscript in preparation) [see also remarks under Aurigequula Fowler 1918]. •Valid as Equula Cuvier 1815 -- (Chakrabarty & Sparks 2008: 5 [ref. 29788] but with the wrong type species). •Synonym of Leiognathus Lacepède 1802 -- (Tortonese 1973:390 [ref. 7192], James 1978:141 [ref. 5317], Jones 1985:571 [ref. 21842], Kottelat 2013:339 [ref. 32989]). Current status: Synonym of Leiognathus Lacepède 1802. Leiognathidae.
