Miscellaneous Details

"Taxonomic Notes: Ambassis gymnocephalus was originally described as Lutjanus gymnocephalus by Lacepède (1802) from Indo-Pacific region. This species is considered as 'nomen dubium' by Anderson and Heemstra (2003) because of the considerable taxonomic confusion and on the basis of the lack of diagnostic features. However, the species has been considered as valid by Day (1875), Talwar and Jhingran (1991), Jayaram (1999) and Eschmeyer (2010)."
