South Africa voucher material: SAM 36184 View Materials , SAM uncatalogued. Specimens in South African museum collection should be re-examined to confirm their identification.

South Africa distribution: Occurs from off the Orange River (NC) to the KZN border with Mozambique.

Remarks: Prior to White et al. (2013, 2017) clarifying the status of C. granulosus   , most large South African Centrophorus   species were referred to as C. lusitanicus   ( Bass et al., 1976, Compagno et al., 1989). However, White et al. (2017) determined that C. lusitanicus   is a junior synonym of C. granulosus   .

Conservation status: EN (2020).
