Taxonomic remark From Terán et al., 2020: Psalidodon has been erected by Eigenmann (1911) as a monotypic genus for its type species P. gymnodontus. That combination was used by many subsequent authors, as Géry (1977), Malabarba (1998), Pavanelli (2003) and Mirande (2009), until Pavanelli & Oliveira (2009) presented a redescription of the type species and synonymized Psalidodon with Astyanax. We hereby resurrect it from this synonymy and consider Psalidodon as a valid genus. This expanded definition of Psalidodon includes many taxa previously classified in Astyanax, including most species of the Astyanax eigenmanniorum, A. fasciatus and A. scabripinnis groups. [details]
