status

 

Apristurus macrostomus Chu, Meng   & Li, 1985

Type locality: off Zhujiang, South China Sea.

The 13 Taiwanese samples of A. macrostomus   formed a single cluster that includes other previously collected samples from Taiwan (Supplementary Material 1). Sample GN 1013 is labeled as A. macrorhynchus   in Naylor et al. (2012 a, 2012 b). Based on results of this study, the sample may have to be transferred to A. macrostomus   . This clade is closest to, but very distinct from, an A. exsanguis   clade from New Zealand.
