Orectolobus cf. leptolineatus


Orectolobus cf. leptolineatus  

The single Orectolobus cf. leptolineatus   sample from Taiwan included in this analysis cluster with three other Taiwanese samples (GN 7838 to GN 7840) ( Figure 5). This cluster of Taiwanese samples is very closely related to the O. leptolineatus   clade containing five samples from Lombok, Indonesia (GN 7829, GN 7831 to GN 7834) ( Fig. 5). Given the close species interrelationships within the genus (Corrigan & Beheregaray, 2009; Naylor et al., 2012 a, 2012 b), and recognised taxonomic uncertainty among species (Last et al., 2010) we tentatively designate the Taiwanese samples as O. cf. leptolineatus   . Samples of O. japonicus   are required in the future to determine its relationship with O. cf. leptolineatus   and O. leptolineatus   .
