However, molecular phylogenetic reconstructions (Durand et al. 2012a,b, Xia et al. submitted) clearly demonstrate that Mugil argenteus is an independent evolutionary lineage justifying validity of the genus Gracilimugil (Durand et al. 2012b). It is a monotypic genus, brother of Aldrichetta, within the Trachystomaini tribe in the Rhinomugilinae subfamily (Xia et al. submitted, Fig. 1). Eight diagnostic morpho-anatomical traits characterized Gracilimugil among genera of its tribe: adipose eyelid reaching the rim of eye, tendon flange 1/2–2/3 down maxilla shaft, pads over maxilla and the tendon to the mouth, tongue keeled, mouth gape horizontal or slightly oblique, two valves in pharyngobranchial organ, gills rakers very long (Xia et al.
