Carcharhinus tjutjot (Bleeker, 1852)


Carcharhinus tjutjot (Bleeker, 1852) 

Type locality: Jakarta, Java, Indonesia.

The two Taiwanese samples of C. tjutjot  included in this analysis formed a single cluster that includes a sample of this species from Indonesian Borneo (GN 4597), and is sister to the C. dussumieri  clade from the northwestern Indian Ocean (Supplementary Material 1). A recent revision of the C. dussumieri-C. sealei  complex informed by both molecular and morphological data resurrected Carcharhinus tjujot  as a valid nominal species (White, 2012).
