A green spotted puffer may be one of several different species of Asian fresh or brackish water pufferfish in the genus Dichotomyctere (formerly Tetraodon), including:

Distinguishing these species is difficult,[1] in part because each species is highly variable in colouration.[2] Scientists working on these pufferfish as genomic lab animals consider it impossible to identify these species 100% reliably using colouration alone,[3] and tropical fish retailers commonly confuse them.[3]
