Taxonomy

Lefroyia bermundensis Jones, 1874, Bermuda. The holotype was named in honor of Lefroy, a former governor of Bermuda. The species is now valid as Carapus bermudensis (Jones) following several taxonomic revisions. Numerous names are probably referable to C. bermudensis, including C. recifensis, C. chavesi, and Fierasfer dubius. C. bermudensis may be related most closely to C. acus, its eastern Atlantic relative. The species-level relationships of the genus, however, are poorly known.

OTHER COMMON NAMES None known.
