  Comment :   
In Norman 1929:543, and Parin et al. 1995:737.
  Etymology of generic noun :   
Greek, pseudes = false + Greek, skopelos = a lantern fish (Ref. 45335). Lütken did not recognize the presence of photophores on the body, confusing them with pores, but referred to a genus of lanternfish (Scopelus now Myctophum) when he named the genus (Ref. 85782).
