  Comment :   
Although Bonnaterre's work is established as having preceeded that of Gmelin, in all literature to year the Gmelin name is employed. The International Code of Zoological Nomenclature requires that such long neglected names be ignored (Ref. 44050).
  Etymology of generic noun :   
Greek, silouros = a cat fish + Greek, odous = teeth (Ref. 45335).
