Australian Blacktip Shark

Galeolamna pleurotaenia tilstoni Whitley, 1950: 100  , Figs. 1View FIGURE 1, 2View FIGURE 2. Holotype: AMS IB  . 2421 (jaws and skin). Type locality: Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, Australia  .

Local synonymy: White et al., 2018: 162, figs (PNG).

PNG voucher material: (2 spec.) CSIRO H 7833-01, juvenile male 540 mm TL, south of Deception Bay, Gulf of Papua, 8°2’19” S, 144°37’12” E, 22–24 m depth, 15 Dec. 2014; CSIRO H 8151-01 (dried jaw), female 800 mm TL, east of Fly River mouth, Gulf of Papua, 8°42’ S, 144°3’ E, 19–22 m depth, 3 Dec. 2014.

Remarks: Previously thought to be an Australian endemic species. Caught in prawn trawl fisheries and by coastal fisheries in PNG, from Western Province to Milne Bay Province and also recently recorded at mouth of Sepik River in East Sepik Province. Very similar and easily misidentified as C. limbatus  ; confirmed based on specimens and genetic data (S. Appleyard and G. Naylor, unpubl. data).
