|Scientific Name:||Liza luciae (Penrith & Penrith, 1967)|
Ellochelon luciae Penrith & Penrith, 1967
|Taxonomic Notes:||There has been much disagreement concerning the relationships of the one family placed in order Mugiliformes (Nelson 2006). Although reasons exist for regarding mugilids as perciform, rather than being related to the Atherinomorpha, there seems to be insufficient reason to change the classification from that given in Nelson (1994), based on Stiassny (1993) and Johnson and Patterson (1993) (Nelson 2006).
This species is treated by some authors as being a synonym of the more widespread Liza melinoptera (Valenciennes, 1836).
