Alopias pelagicus Nakamura, 1935


Alopias pelagicus Nakamura, 1935  

The single Taiwanese A. pelagicus   sample included in this analysis formed a single cluster with a sample from off Baja California (GN 5402) (Supplementary Material 1). When included in a subsequent analysis comprising further samples analysed in Naylor et al. (2012 a), the specimen clustered with the subcluster discussed in Naylor et al. (2012 a) including predominantly Pacific and Indian Ocean samples ( Figure 6).
