- Tripterygion melanurus Hastings, Philip A., 2009, Zootaxa 2120: 11-11.
21) Tripterygion. Zander (1986 b) recognized Tripterygion delaisi delaisi Cadenat & Blache from the eastern Atlantic excluding the Mediterranean Sea (type locality: Gorée, Senegal), and T. d. xanthosoma Zander & Heymer from the Mediterranean (type locality: Banyuls-sur-Mer, France). These forms reportedly differ in courtship behavior and ecology. Wirtz (1990) and Fricke (1997) considered the latter a synonym of the former. Recent genetic studies (Carreras-Carbonell et al., 2005; Domingues et al., 2007) found evidence of two lineages, however, it is not clear that the genetic differences parallel the phenotypic (and nomenclatural) differences. Consequently, resolution of the status of these forms awaits further study (Domingues et al., 2007).
