DORADIDAE Bleeker, 1858  

Doradini Bleeker, 1858b: 48, 52. Type genus: Doras La Cepède, 1803   .

Remarks: The family-group names Centrochirinae, Hemidoradinae, and Lithodoradinae were proposed by Fowler (1951b: 3) in a manner that made the names available when published, but the names were rendered unavailable in 1961 by Art. 13 of the Second Edition of the Code (ICZN, 1961). The names apparently remain unavailable, despite Art. 13.2.1 of the current version of the Code (ICZN, 1999), because they were treated as unavailable in Ferraris & de Pinna (1999: 8).

Revision: Eigenmann (1925).

Review: Fernández-Yépez (1968, Venezuela).

Phylogeny: Higuchi (1992), Moyer et al. (2004).

Taxonomic summary: Sabaj (2002); Sabaj & Ferraris (2003).

30 genera, 77 species; no named fossil taxa.
