How about species of tuna? From Wikipedia:

There are eight tuna species in the Thunnus genus:

     * Albacore, Thunnus alalunga (Bonnaterre, 1788).
     * Yellowfin tuna, Thunnus albacares (Bonnaterre, 1788).
     * Blackfin tuna, Thunnus atlanticus (Lesson, 1831).
     * Southern bluefin tuna, Thunnus maccoyii (Castelnau, 1872).
     * Bigeye tuna, Thunnus obesus (Lowe, 1839).
     * Pacific bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis (Temminck & Schlegel, 1844).
     * Northern bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus (Linnaeus, 1758).
     * Longtail tuna, Thunnus tonggol (Bleeker, 1851).

Species of several other genera (all in the family Scombridae) have common names containing
"tuna":

     * Skipjack tuna Katsuwonus pelamis (Linnaeus, 1758)
     * Slender tuna Allothunnus fallai (Serventy, 1948)
     * Bullet tuna Auxis rochei (Risso, 1810)
     * Frigate tuna Auxis thazard (Lacepede, 1800)
     * Kawakawa (little tuna or mackerel tuna) Euthynnus affinis (Cantor, 1849)
     * Little tunny (little tuna) Euthynnus alletteratus (Rafinesque, 1810)
     * Dogtooth tuna Gymnosarda unicolor (Rüppell, 1836)
     * Black skipjack tuna Euthynnus lineatus (Kishinouye, 1920)
     * Derek Donegan tuna Euthynnus lineatus (Atrane, 1988)

The current version of Ceryle is "skipjack" and I'm planning to
change it to dogtooth, yellowfin, bluefin, or something...

Obviously needs to be short and one word...
