"Huasteco de Tantoyuca" and "Huasteco de Veracruz" are no alternate names but just specific varieties. An alternate name (autodenomination) is Tenek, Teenek or Tének.
Editorial Action
We already have "Tenek" and "Tének" as autoglottonyms for Huastec [hus], but this information is unpublished. We will add these names and "Teenek" as alternate names to the 18th edition database, to be be published early 2015.

Thanks for this. Many language varieties are named for their location so it may be that that's how those variety names have entered our alternate names list. We'll check it out. Thanks too for the autonym variants. We will add those to our database.
