Genus Deveximentum

In Australia, the three species in this genus were previously placed in the genus Secutor. Kottelat (2013) noted that Secutor was apparently a replacement name for Equula Cuvier, 1815, which is now regarded as a synonym of Leiognathus., and proposed using the name Deveximentum Fowler 1904, as a replacement name.
