Rhina ancylostoma Bloch & Schneider, 1801 

Bowmouth Guitarfish

Rhina ancylostomus Bloch & Schneider, 1801: 352  , pl. 72. Lectotype: ZMB (lost), Paralectotype, ZMB 4621View Materials (1, dry, lost). Type locality: Coromandel , India  .

Local synonymy: Rhina  anclyostoma— Filewood, 1973:10 (PNG); Kailola, 1987: 26 (Sepik River mouth); White et al., 2018: 200, figs (PNG).

PNG voucher material: (1 spec.) KFRS E.476 (dried jaws), no collection data.

Remarks: First recorded from PNG by Filewood (1973), presumably based KFRS E.476; KFRS E.476 not present in elasmobranch cards in the collection; the only KFRS specimen of this species was a dried jaw KFRS E.262 (Sepik River mouth, Jul. 1966) which was listed as found in 2000 but was not found in the current study; possibly previously found without a registration number and allocated a new number unnecessarily, but cannot be confirmed. Recorded from coastal fisheries catches and as bycatch from the Gulf of Papua prawn trawl fisher during recent surveys.
