New generic names for freshwater pufferfish (1)

27. May 2014

recently most species of freshwater puffer from Africa and Asia have
been placed in the genus Tetraodon. Currently this concept changes. The
name Tetraodon is restricted now to the six species of freshwater puffer
occuring in Africa, namely Tetraodon duboisi, T. lineatus, T. mbu, T.
miurus, T. pustulatus and T. schoutedeni. All other species are placed
in different and often new genera; we will introduce all these changes
to you in the upcoming weeks.

have currently three species of African pufferfish in stock: T.
lineatus from Nigeria; from the Congo originate T. miurus (we have them
in different colours) and T. mbu (we have different sizes).

our customers: T. lineatus has code 190305, T. miurus 191303 and T. mbu

supply the wholesale trade.
