Remarks: Holotype collected by Heinrich Christian Macklot in August 1828 during an expedition to New Guinea onboard the HM corvette Triton; although a German naturalist, he was employed through the Rijksmuseum in Leiden and the expedition was to Dutch New Guinea (= West Papua), thus not collected from PNG. First recorded from PNG by Munro (1958) from Milne Bay Province and New Britain. Commonly taken as bycatch in the Gulf of Papua prawn trawl fishery and by gillnet fishers at the mouth of the Sepik River.
