  Remark
:
Distribution: Atlantic and Pacific. Mainly tropical. Cycloid scales, never small and imbedded; only the anterior edge has radii. Few species scaleless (5 in Stathmonotus, 1 in Neoclinus). Nape, nostril, and above eye often with cirri. Dorsal fin with more spines than soft-rays; some species with only a spinous dorsal fin. Viviparity occurs in the genera Xenomeda and Starksia. Male intromittent organ present only in Starksia. Feed on small benthic invertebrates (Ref. 7463). For the most part are generalized blennioids that do not fall within the limits of the other well-defined families; relationships within this family unknown and essentially unhypothesized based on morphological characters (Ref. 94100). Benthic inhabitants usually dwelling in holes and restricted to rocky, shelly, or coral reefs in shallow water, a few species in marine grass beds or sponges; a few species in deep water. The larvae, which are scaleless and often cirriless, are often misidentified as Blenniidae. The presence of more spines than rays in the dorsal fin of all labrisomids is an aid to identification. Labrisomids have no commercial importance in FAO Area 31. They are, however, very abundant in certain localities and some of the larger species are caught, usually on hook-and-line, around jetties. They are edible, but rarely consumed (Ref.52855).

Species/Synonymy list for the family Labrisomidae as currently in FishBase

Important recommendation:

The list below must not be used as an authority reference synonymy list like those found in scientific published revisions, which must be the source to be used and cited eventually when they exist.

Rather, it reflects the current content of FishBase, and the progress with respect to synchronization with the Catalog of Fishes. However, we think it can be useful for users to assess the quality of information in FishBase, to start new work on the family, or to cross-check with other lists.

But we appreciate to be cited in publications when this list has been of any working value. In particular, for published scientific, we suggest then to cite it in the Material and Method section as a useful tool to conduct the research, but again, not as a taxonomic or nomenclatural authority reference.

Unless it is explicitly precised, the list is not complete, please search all original names published for the family in the Catalog of Fishes (genera, species), including those with uncertain or unknown status, that are not included in FishBase when they are not attached to a valid species.

This list uses some data from Catalog of Fishes (not shown but used to sort names).

The list ordered as follows:

Please send comments and corrections if you detect errors or missing names.
