Local synonymy: Carcharhinus melanopterus  (in part)— Filewood, 1973: 5 (PNG); Carcharhinus  cautus— Kailola, 1987: 16 ( Port Romilly ; Sigabadu); Last & Stevens, 2009: 257 ( PNG)  ; White et al., 2018: 138, figs (PNG).

PNG voucher material: (2 spec.) KFRS E.009A (dried jaws), Hall Sound, Central Province; KFRS E.011, Kairuku area, Yule Island , Aug. 1964  .
