Year from Eschmeyer (CofF ver. Mar. 2003: Ref. 46206).
  Etymology of generic noun  
Greek, pseudes = false + Greek, skopelos = a lantern fish (Ref. 45335). L├╝tken did not recognize the presence of photophores on the body, confusing them with pores, but referred to a genus of lanternfish (Scopelus now Myctophum) when he named the genus (Ref. 85782).
