Arothron (subgenus of Tetrodon) Müller [J.] 1841:252 Masc. Tetrodon testudinarius Müller 1841. Type by monotypy. Possibly appeared in Müller 1839 (Abh. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, p. 196) (see Leis & Bauchot 1984:85 [ref. 12539]). Gender uncertain, treated by current authors as masculine. If Tetrodon testudinarius is regarded as an emendation of testudinius Linnaeus, then the genus is based on a misidentified type species and should be submitted to the International Commission. •Apparently valid -- (see Matsuura & Toda 1981 [ref. 5537]). •Valid as Arothron Müller 1841 -- (Tyler 1980:341 [ref. 4477], Arai 1983:207 [ref. 14249], Matsuura in Masuda et al. 1984:364 [ref. 6441], Randall 1985 [ref. 6719], Smith & Heemstra 1986:896 [ref. 5714], Su & Tyler 1986:14 [ref. 11531], Matsuura & Okuno 1991 [ref. 19923], Gomon et al. 1994:903 [ref. 22532], Matsuura 1994 [ref. 21445], Matsuura & Tyler 1997:199 [ref. 23219], Lindberg et al. 1997:164 [ref. 23547], Matsuura 2001:3956 [ref. 26317], Hoese et al. 2006:1913 [ref. 29099], Matsuura 2008:850 [ref. 30661], Verruraj et al. 2011:3 [ref. 31496], Randall et al. 2012:41 [ref. 31764], Kottelat 2013:471 [ref. 32989], Matsuura 2014:20 [ref. 33576], Stewart & Roberts 2015:1732 [ref. 34322], Matsuura 2016:[2] [ref. 34340], Motomura et al. 2017:236 [ref. 35490], Fricke et al. 2018:384 [ref. 35805], Golani & Fricke 2018:181 [ref. 36273]).
