Arius bartonensis Woodward, 1887: 306   , fig. 3. Type locality: High Cliff, Barton Hampshire, England. Upper Eocene. Holotype: BMNH 40280 (dorsal fin spine). Originally: Arius   (?) bartonensis   .

Arius egertoni belgicus Leriche, 1905   . (no additional information; name from Weiler, 1956: 187).

Arius Bonneti Priem 1904: 44   (figs. 3–8). Type locality: Bartonien superieur de Marines. Types: dans la collection Bonnet (dorsal and pectoral fin spines); also illustrated in Priem (1908: 123, figs. 63, 64, pl. 3, figs. 5–6).

Arius Dutemplei Leriche, 1900: 181   , pl. 1, figs 13–15. Type locality: Cuis, Chavot [Marne, Lower Eocene]. Types: at laboratoire de Géologie de l’Université de Lille (dorsal fin spine, pectoral fin spine)   .

Distribution: several Paris Basin localities, lowermost Eocene (Gaudant, 1981) (from Gayet & Meunier, 2003).

Silurus Egertoni Dixon   , in Dixon & Egerton, 1850: 112, 204, pl. 11, figs. 11–13. Bracklesham Bay, Sussex, Middle Eocene. Holotype: BMNH 25612 (pectoral arch and spine).  

Remarks: Redescribed as † Arius egertoni   in Woodward (1887: 304, figs. 1–2).

Arius Fraasi Peyer, 1928: 17   , pl. 6, fig. 2. Type locality: Unterste Nokkattam-Stufe, Eocän , Cairo. Holotype: at Naturalienkabinett Stuttgart.  

Arius gigas   [no additional information; from Gayet & Meunier (2003)].

Distribution: Chad, Mio-Pliocene (Brunet et al., 2000).

Remarks: Gayet & Meunier (2003) placed this species in the Ariidae   , but without any additional information. It is unclear whether the use of this name in Brunet et al. (2000) and Gayet & Meunier (2003) was intended to identify fossils with the Recent species Arius gigas Boulenger   or this name was proposed independently of, and therefore a homonym of, that name.

Arius heward-belli White, 1926: 56   , pl. 13, figs. 4–12. Type locality: Ameki , Nigeria, Eocene. Holotype: National Collection [ Nigeria] or BMNH (pectoral spine tip).

Holotype: (skull) Geological Survey of India, Calcutta 17539. Remarks: See Sahni & Mishra (1975: 11, pl. 2, figs. 2–4) for emended diagnosis.
