|Taxon Notes:||Araki & Motomura (2022) resurrected Urocampus guentheri Duncker 1909 from the synonym of Urocampus carinirostris Castelnau 1872. It is currently known from near Ceduna (c. 134 E), South Australia westwards to the Swan R (31°53′S, 115°56′E), Western Australia and from Shark Bay, WA (c. 26 S). The holotype from Shark Bay was destroyed, but the occurrence of the species from this area is based on Kuiter 2009, 282, Figure J (Seahorses and their relatives).|
