Galeus nipponensis Nakaya, 1975


Galeus nipponensis Nakaya, 1975  

Type locality: Mimase, off Kochi Prefecture, Honshu, Japan.

The single G. nipponensis   sample included in this analysis is the first representative sample for this species and it formed a distinct lineage, sister to Parmaturus xaniurus   from off California (GN 1536) (Supplementary Material 1). As indicated in Naylor et al. (2012 b), the genus Galeus   may be paraphyletic and thus the generic placement of this species needs to be examined in the future.
