Takifugu (subgenus of Sphoeroides) Abe [T.] 1949:90 (in key) Masc. Tetrodon oblongus Bloch 1786. Type by monotypy. Appeared first in Abe 1939:336 [ref. 5589] for several species; no type designated; not available (Art. 13.3). For technical reasons (see Art. 13.3 in Appendix A, in Eschmeyer 1990 [ref. 20647]) the genus apparently can date to Marshall [N. B.] & Palmer [G.] 1950 (in Zoological Record for 1949, were a citation to Abe is given and a type is designated). Gastrophysus can be suppressed under the ICZN, and Matsuura 2015 has declared his intention to ask the ICZN to suppress Gastrophysus (Matsuura 2015) but no decision has been made. Takifugu in prevailing recent practice. •Synonym of Gastrophysus Müller 1843 -- (Kottelat 2013:476 [ref. 32989]). •Valid as Takifugu Marshall & Palmer 1950 (often seen with author date as Abe 1949) -- (Matsuura in Masuda et al. 1984:362 [ref. 6441], Smith & Heemstra 1986:902 [ref. 5714], Su et al. 1986:112 [ref. 12582], Kottelat 1989:21 [ref. 13605], Lindberg et al. 1997:116 [ref. 23547], Matsuura 2001:3956 [ref. 26317], Parin 2003:S34 [ref. 28536], Verruraj et al. 2011:9 [ref. 31496], Poltev & Koynov 2011:819 [ref. 32470], Matsuura 2014:20 [ref. 33576], Parin et al. 2014:553 [ref. 33547], Dyldin et al. 2016:133 [ref. 34682], Dyldin & Orlov 2017:202 [ref. 35257], Fricke et al. 2018:389 [ref. 35805], Matsuura 2017:71 [ref. 35985], Jelks 2018:289 [ref. 36375]).
