A record of the blacktip tope Hypogaleus hyugaensis ( Miyosi, 1939) in the Gulf was first reported in Compagno (1984), apparently inserted without this author’s knowledge and on an uncertain basis (LJV Compagno, pers. comm.). Randall (1986, Fig. 39) presented a photograph of the then undescribed Paragaleus randalli from Bahrain as H. hyugaensis . Currently H. hyugaensis is known from southern and eastern Africa, Australia, Taiwan and Japan, and seems to be a deeper-water species than P. randalli (LJV Compagno, pers. comm.). As yet there is no evidence for this species in the Gulf.
