Genus Chimaera Linnaeus, 1758 Chimaeras 

Chimaera Linnaeus, 1758: 236  . Type Chimaera monstrosa Linnaeus, 1758  , by Linnaean tautonymy.

Chimaera ogilbyi Waite, 1898  Ogilby’s Chimaera 

Chimaera ogilbyi Waite, 1898: 56  , Pl. 11. Syntypes: AMS I.3732, AMS I.3724, AMS I.3736, AMS I.3737. Type locality: off Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Local synonymy: Hydrolagus  ogilbyi— Fricke et al., 2014: 16 (Madang Province). Chimaera  ogilbyi— Finucci et al., 2018: 191, fig. 5d (East Sepik Province); White et al., 2018: 294, figs (PNG).

PNG voucher material: (2 spec.) NTUM 10332, juvenile male 362 mm TL, 129 mm body length, NTUM 10333, female 287 mm TL, 109 mm body length, west of Kairiru Island , East Sepik Province, 3°20’S, 143°28’E, 378–495 m depth, 19 Dec. 2012GoogleMaps  .

Remarks: First recorded from PNG by Fricke et al. (2014), based on NTUM 10332 and 10333 collected in 2012; note that these were collected from off the East Sepik Province and not Madang and thus was probably confused with the Hydrolagus cf. mitsukurii  specimen (see below) which was taken from off Madang. Despite some molecular differences, these specimens are morphologically identical with Australian C. ogilbyi  specimens and were considered conspecific by Finucci et al. (2018). Previously placed in the genus Hydrolagus  .
