Abbreviated species synonymy

Typhlichthys subterraneus Girard ZBK , 1859

Typhlichthys subterraneus Girard ZBK , 1859: 63 (type locality: Kentucky , Warren Co. : from a well near Bowling Green ; Syntypes : USNM 8563 [3]).

Typhlichthys eigenmanni Charlton , 1933: 285-324; figs. 1?, 6, 9, 13-16, 21, 23 (type locality: Missouri , Camden Co.cave on the property of Robert M. Snyder, Jr [Ha Ha Tonka Castle] , 11 syntypes, range “somewhat less than” 30 to 65 mm in length [whereabouts of types unknown]).

Typhlichthys eigenmanni Hubbs ZBK , 1938: 265 ( nomen nudum , available as Typhlichthys eigenmanni Charlton , 1933).

Remarks: Typhlichthys eigenmanni Charlton , 1933, is treated as a subjective synonym of Typhlichthys subterraneus Girard ZBK , 1859, the Southern Cavefish, the name applied to blind amblyopsids in southeastern Missouri (see Mayden & Cross, 1983). Charlton’s (1933) figure 1 is identified as Typhlichthys eigenmanni in the text, but as Troglichthys rosae in the figure caption. See Poly & Proudlove (2004:4) for additional synonyms.
