Taxon Notes:This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available. This code replaces previous (interim) CAAB code 00 702801 (FISHLIST 702801).
Scientific Name Notes:Originally a single family, it has been split into several distinct families by some recent authors. There is still some uncertainty about the status of some groups within the Majidae sensu lato, and the current classification is likely to be altered with more research. The classification adopted here follows Ng et al, 2008 and WoRMS.
