Deania cf. profundorum


Deania cf. profundorum 

The two Deania  samples collected in Taiwan were initially identified as D. cf. quadrispinosa  . They formed a single cluster that included a sample from off Japan (GN 7456) labeled as D. profundorum  and a sample from off New South Wales, Australia (GN 2543) identified as D. quadrispinosum  2 (Supplementary Material 1, Figure 1). This cluster grouped closest to, but distinct from, a D. quadrispinosum  1 sample (GN 2619) from New South Wales, Australia. A taxonomic revision of this group is currently underway. This species is provisionally identified as D. cf. profundorum  , but is distinct from the D. cf. profundorum  sample from Portugal ( Figure 1), which is certainly a distinct species.
