A number of diagnostic skeletal elements (particularly otoliths) from other fish species are complete enough to allow measurement, but comparative data for these species were not available (Serranidae, Labridae

It is evident that the Pomacentridae, Labridae
and Callyodontidae form a natural bloc which could readily be studied together.
Phylogenetic relationships and evolutionary history of the reef fish family Labridae
Reallocation of some of these species to other genera may result in Cirrhilabrus being the largest genus of Labridae
