Abstract
    The holotype of Centrolophus valenciennesi Moreau, 1881, from Marseille, previously synonymized either with Centrolophus niger (Gmelin, 1788) or with Schedophilus ovalis (Cuvier, 1833) was reexamined and identified as Hyperoglyphe perciformis (Mitchill, 1815) : this is the first record of this species in the Mediterranean . Although the holotype of Centrolophus newtoni Osorio, 1895, based on a specimen from Portugal, was destroyed by fire in 1978, it is established that this species, synonymized with Centrolophus niger, is in fact Hyperoglyphe perciformis.
