Excerpt from The Genera of Fishes, Vol. 3: From Guenther to Gill, 1859-1880, Twenty-Two Years, With the Accepted Type of Each; A Contribution to the Stability of Scientific Nomenclature The present memoir is the third part of a catalogue of the generic names applied to fishes subsequent to January 1, 1858. With the other parts it is a contribution to the stability of scientific nomenclature, the genera being listed in order Of date accompanied by the indication of the type species of each. The first part (1758 to 1833) was intended to serve as an aid to the International Commission Of Zoological Nomenclature by bringing to gether the generic names of fishes as proposed in the formative period of classification. Together with the data by which authors who failed to con form to the Linnaean system could be considered, each on his merits. I had at first no intention of continuing the series beyond 1833, but the data gathered for the first part seemed to make the compilation of the catalogue worth while.
