    Abstract

    The taxonomy of our commercially important marine catfishes is still in a state of uncertainty. The nomenclature has suffered a lot of changes brought about by various taxonomists. When some authors have used the genus name Tachysurus, and hence the family name Tachysuridae, others preferred the name Anus and the family name Ariidae. Valenciennes (1840), Bleeker(1847), Gunther (1864), Day (1878), Weber and Beaufort (1913), Herre (1953), Jordan (1963), Fischer and Whithead (1974) and Fischer and Bianchi (1984) all have used the name >4r/us Val. 1840, whereas Fowler (1941), Chandy (1953), Munro (1955), Tilak (1965), Jayaram and Dhanze (1978 a, 1978 b) and Menon (1979) replaced the name Ar/us Val. 1840 by Tachysurus Lacepede 1803.
