 Comments
       
  Comment: Eschmeyer (online Catalog of Fishes, 2004) notes that Harengula melanurus is "Subjectively invalid; secondarily preoccupied by Clupea melanura Cuvier 1829 when both were in Clupea, replaced by Clupea atricauda GŁnther 1868 and by Harengula valenciennesi Bleeker 1868. Synonym of Sardinella atricauda (GŁnther 1868) -- (Whitehead 1985:92 [ref. 5141], Monroe et al. 1999:1809 [ref. 24728])"
