  Remark
:
Four-eyed fishes, onesided livebearers & the white eye are chiefly freshwater and brackish; rarely coastal marine and distributed from southern Mexico to southern South America. Epiotic and supraoccipital robust; pelvic fins distinctly behind tip of pectoral fin; pectoral girdle set low on side; radials situated ventrally or posteriorly. In Anablepinae eyes prominently raised above top of head; each eye divided lengthwise into upper and lower parts giving rise to two pupils each for the right and left eyes; individuals swim with center of eye aligned with the water level and are capable of double vision. Anal fin turned into tubelike gonopodium. Gonopodium and female genital aperture either dextral or sinistral. Males and females divided equally into sinistral and dextral mating types. Viviparous. Oxyzygonectes is oviparous. Maximum length 32 cm in Anablepinae, 12 cm in Jenynsiinae.

Species/Synonymy list for the family Anablepidae as currently in FishBase

Important recommendation:

The list below must not be used as an authority reference synonymy list like those found in scientific published revisions, which must be the source to be used and cited eventually when they exist.

Rather, it reflects the current content of FishBase, and the progress with respect to synchronization with the Catalog of Fishes. However, we think it can be useful for users to assess the quality of information in FishBase, to start new work on the family, or to cross-check with other lists.

But we appreciate to be cited in publications when this list has been of any working value. In particular, for published scientific, we suggest then to cite it in the Material and Method section as a useful tool to conduct the research, but again, not as a taxonomic or nomenclatural authority reference.

Unless it is explicitly precised, the list is not complete, please search all original names published for the family in the Catalog of Fishes (genera, species), including those with uncertain or unknown status, that are not included in FishBase when they are not attached to a valid species.

This list uses some data from Catalog of Fishes (not shown but used to sort names).

In the column CofF, the digit indicates the status of synchronization with CofF: 0: Not checked; 1: Same status;   2: Different status;   3: Other combination;   4: Synonym in CofF;   5: Species/Subspecies issue;   6: Synonym of another species in CofF;   7: Not in CofF;   8: Should not be in CofF. The CofF version currently used is the one published on 19-05-2014 (Ref. 95876).

The list ordered as follows:
