Benthobatis yangi Carvalho, Compagno & Ebert, 2003  

Type locality: off Tongkang, southwestern Taiwan.

The two Taiwanese samples included in our analysis formed a single cluster, sister to but very distinct from a Typhlonarke aysoni   sample from off New Zealand (GN 6759) (Supplementary Material 1). This species appears endemic to Taiwan and thus these two samples are representative of the range of this species.
