Scoliodon macrorhynchos (Bleeker, 1852)


Scoliodon macrorhynchos (Bleeker, 1852)  

Type locality: Jakarta, Java, Indonesia.

The four Taiwanese samples of S. macrorhynchos   included in this analysis formed a single cluster that included previously collected samples from Vietnam, Malaysia and Taiwan (Supplementary Material 1; Naylor et al., 2012 a). This clade was sister to the S. laticaudus   clade consisting of individuals from off India (Supplementary Material 1; Naylor et al., 2012 a). This species was recently resurrected as a valid nominal species following a taxonomic revision (White et al., 2010) and the results of this study further support these findings.
