Revision of australian species of torquigener tetraodontiformes tetraodontidae and 2 new generic names for australian puffer fishes



Journal of the Royal Society of New Zealand 13(1-2): 1-48



The genus Torquigener Whitley is redescribed and includes 12 Australian species: T. whitleyi (Paradice), T. paxtoni sp. nov., T. pallimaculatus sp. nov., T. parcuspinus sp. nov., T. hicksi sp. nov., T. tuberculiferus (Ogilby), T. perlevis (Ogilby), T. altipinnis (Ogilby), T. squamicauda (Ogilby), T. pleurogramma (Regan), T. vicinus Whitley, and T. andersonae sp. nov. T. vicinus is elevated to full specific rank from its original description as T. tuberculiferus vicinus. On the basis of morphologic and osteologic characters, new genera, TETRACTENOS and POLYSPINA are proposed for Tetrodon glaber Freminville and Tetraodon hamiltoni Gray and Richardson, and Torquigener piosae Whitley, respectively. A preliminary key to Australian tetraodontid genera is included, plus keys to Torquigener and Tetractenos species. Detailed bibliographies are given for each species.
