  Comment :   
Appears to be a senior synonym of Herklotsichthys quadrimaculatus. C. mauritiana barely used at all, while H. quadrimaculatus is widely accepted, thus the case needs to be decided by the ICZN (Ref, 33390).
  Etymology of Generic name : 
Latin, clupea = sardine, derived from Clupeus = shield; doubtless a reference to the scales covering the body of the fish + Greek, odous = teeth (Ref. 45335).
