Description: Hi

The identification on this was changed in 1989 when it became the holotype of a new species (C. paxtoni).

It's messier than this, sadly. Yes, I.29316-002 is the type of Conocara paxtoni This specimen is in FishBase with the old identification. This specimen also occurs two further times:

So we have THREE instance of this specimen in the database (sigh). One is identified as Conocara paxtoni. The two occurrences 1100616447 and 485281448 are in the same dataset, but this reflects another issue of wholesale duplication :(
