Brachypterois

Résumé
Brachypterois is a genus of marine ray-finned fishes belonging to the family Scorpaenidae, the scorpionfishes. They are native to the Indian Ocean and the western Pacific Ocean. Taxonomy Brachypterois was first formally described in 1938 by the American zoologist Henry Weed Fowler when he described Brachypterois serrulifer, from the Philippines, as the only species in this monotypic genus. This genus is classified within the tribe Pteroini of the subfamily Scorpaeninae within the family Scorpaenidae. The genus was regarded as monotypic, with Sebastes serrulatus, which was described by John Richardson in 1846, being regarded as a senior synonym of Fowler's B. serrulifer. However, a review of the genus published in 2013 and which examined many specimens of Brachypterois from across the wide distribution of the genus concluded that there were 3 valid species within the genus and that Fowler's B. serrilifer was a separate species from Richardson's B. serrulata.
