SpeciesEdit

Four species are currently recognised as comprising the genus Crenimugil:[2]

The half-fringelip mullet (Crenimugil heterocheilos), usually assigned to Crenimugil, appears to belong to a separate genus, Paracrenimugil, based on DNA-based cladistic analysis.[3][4] In addition, the longfin mullet (Moolgarda pedaraki) is listed by some authorities as Crenimugil pedaraki.[5]
