Spawning and rearing of a porcupine puffer Cyclichthys orbicularis (Diodontidae, Tetraodontiformes) in captivity
Cyclichthys orbicularis (Diodontidae, Tetraodontiformes) were spawned in captivity, the larvae being reared for more than 60 days, in the Shimonoseki Marine Science Museum Aquarium. Isolated
Adhesive demersal eggs spawned by two southern Australian porcupine puffers
Eggs spawned in the Shimonoseki Marine Science Museum Aquarium by eight species of Diodontidae were mostly pelagic, only A. pilatus and D. nicthemerus spawning adhesive demersal eggs required comparative studies on diodontid spawning ecology.
Immunochemical detection of precursor proteins of yolk and vitelline envelope, and their annual changes in the blood of Diodon holocanthus
VTG and VEP in female serum maintained high levels from April until June, suggesting that yolk accumulation, as well as vitelline envelope formation, are occurring actively during these months, and that slightly different hormonal regulation exists in the synthesis of both proteins in the liver during the early phase of oogenesis.
A new generic name for Anchisomus multistriatus Richardson 1854 Tetraodontidae, with notes on its toxicity and pufferfish biting behaviour
A poorly known pufferfish, Anchisomus multistriatus Richardson, is redescribed from 25 specimens from northern Australian coastal waters, and placed in a new monotypic genus, Feroxodon. It differs

This paper derives specific predictions from three alternative hypotheses which deal with mode of fertilization (internal versus external) and parental care evolution, and test these predictions using a compilation of published data on occurrence and correlates of parental care in amphibians and teleost fishes.
