Name[править]

Brevoortia tyrannus (Latrobe, 1802))

  • No types known.

Type locality: Chesapeake Bay, northeastern U.S.A..

Etymology: The specific name was given after the absolute rulers of ancient Rome, the Tyranni, who forced food-tasters to test their food for poison. The auhtor picked this name because he found in the type specimen a parasitic isopod, or fish louse, that lived in its mouth (see: The ETYFish Project).
