Current Summary   Valid as Hydrocynus  Cuvier 1816. Alestidae.
 
Name History   Hydrocion Duméril 1856 and Hydrocinus Boulenger (ex Cuvier) 1909 are unjustified emendations or incorrect subsequent spellings. Type apparently not H. forskahlii Cuvier 1819. Hydrocionichthys Travassos 1952 is an objective synonym if the type of Hydrocynus is forskahlii. But the type species, if correctly H. lucius, is a South American species placed by current authors in the genus Boulengerella in a different family. An African type species for Hydrocynus, such as forskahlii, would stabilize current usage. See Brewster 1986:164 [ref. 8104]. •Valid as an African genus -- (Géry 1977:54 [ref. 1597], Paugy 1984:169 [ref. 6183], Brewster 1986:163 [ref. 8104], Paugy & Guégan 1989:64 [ref. 26479] with date as 1819, Lévêque et al. 1989:116 [ref. 26480], Paugy & Bénech 1989:300 [ref. 26478], Paugy in Lévêque et al. 1990:198 [ref. 21589], Paugy et al. 1990:337 [ref. 26477], Poll & Gosse 1995:141 [ref. 24781], Seegers 1996:165 [ref. 23725], Dankwa et al. 1999:18 [ref. 28023], Zanata & Vari 2005;117 [ref. 28816], Ibala Zamba et al. 2007:1213 [ref. 29470], Paugy & Schaefer 2007:353 [ref. 30022], Mirande 2009:6 [ref. 30267] in Alestidae, Mirande 2010:474 [ref. 31006], Oliveira et al. 2011:10 [ref. 31685], Marshall 2011:138 [ref. 31755]).
