Tetraodon Linnaeus [C.] 1758:332 Masc. Tetraodon lineatus Linnaeus 1758. Type by subsequent designation. Type designated by Lesson, v. 16, 1830:198-199 [ref. 13391] (see Whitley 1935:138 [ref. 6396]). Tetrodon of authors, including Linnaeus 1766:410 [ref. 2786], is a misspelling or incorrect subsequent spelling (see Briggs 1961:164 [ref. 13439]). Kottelat (2013) indicates that Linnaeus used two spellings (332 and 243) and the correct spelling is Tetraodontidae. •Valid as Tetraodon Linnaeus 1758 -- (Dekkers 1975 [ref. 7417], Tyler 1980:341 [ref. 4477], Arai 1983:207 [ref. 14249], Sontirat 1985:41 [ref. 33172], Roberts 1986:434 [ref. 6223], Kottelat 1989:21 [ref. 13605], Lévêque et al. 1989:123 [ref. 26480], Roberts 1989:188 [ref. 6439], Ataur Rahman 1989:52 [ref. 24860], Allen 1991:209 [ref. 21090], Lévêque in Lévêque et al. 1992:868 [ref. 21590], Ataur Rahman 2003:67 [ref. 31338], Hoese et al. 2006:1926 [ref. 29099], Schelly & Carvalho 2007:571 [ref. 30090], Saenjundaeng et al. 2013:77 [ref. 33104], Matsuura 2014:20 [ref. 33576]).
