Centrophorus granulosus (Bloch & Schneider, 1801)


Centrophorus granulosus (Bloch & Schneider, 1801)  

Type locality: unknown.

The 13 Taiwanese samples of C. granulosus   included in this analysis formed a single cluster that are nearly identical to a sample from Japan (GN 7425) and one from Portugal (GN 6615) (Supplementary Material 1, Figure 1). These samples were previously identified as either C. niaukang   or C. acus   but a revision of this species revealed these names are both junior synonyms of C. granulosus (White et al., 2013)   . The cluster of samples for this species was sister to the C. squamosus   cluster (see below).
