Kottelat (2001) points out that the type of Aphanacanthus Le Danois, 1959 is Tetraodon hamiltoni and therefore Tetractenos is a junior synonym of Aphanacanthus, but current authors do not follow Kottelat in this; prevailing usage should be researched

and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
