Remarks: First recorded from PNG by Fricke et al. (2014) as Galeus gracilis Compagno & Stevens, 1993  based on NTUM 10171; described as a new species by White et al. (2016 a). Morphologically similar to Galeus priapus Séret & Last, 2008  from New Caledonia but differs in several characters and at a molecular level (see Fig. 4 in White et al., 2016a). Endemic to PNG.
