Remarks: First recorded from PNG by Filewood (1973) but specimens deposited in Berlin (ZMB) was collected by Otto Finsch and Eduard Hernsheim, German naturalists who operate in PNG in the 1870s and 1880s. Kottelat (2013) placed Squalus fasciatus  into the synonymy of Stegostoma tigrinum ( Forster, 1781)  , however consideration for protecting nomenclatural stability should be taken into account.
