AbstractThe gadid fish, Gaidropsarus pacificus, originally described as Motella pacifica by Temminck & Schlegel (1842) is reduced to a junior synonym of Rhinonemus cimbrius (Linnaeus, 1758). Confusion on the systematic status of Gaidropsarus pacificus seems to have resulted from the inadequate description of barbels in the original description of Motella pacifica.
