The $[46, 9, 20]_2$ code is unique

The minimum distance of all binary linear codes with dimension at most eight is known. The smallest open case for dimension nine is length $ n = 46 $ with known bounds $ 19\le d\le 20 $. Here we present a $ [46,9,20]_2 $ code and show its uniqueness. Interestingly enough, this unique optimal code is asymmetric, i.e., it has a trivial automorphism group. Additionally, we show the non-existence of $ [47,10,20]_2 $ and $ [85,9,40]_2 $ codes.
