Urolophus aurantiacus Müller & Henle, 1841  

Type locality: Gotto Island, Nagasaki, Japan (the additional type locations of Westernport Victoria, and Tasmania in Australia are incorrect and refer to Urolophus cruciatus   ).

The two samples of U. aurantiacus   from Taiwan formed a single cluster, sister to U. paucimaculatus   (GN 2554) from southern Australia (Supplementary Material 1). This represents the Taiwan range of this species, which was described from southern Japan.
