Stevens, J.D., Valenti, S.V. & Fowler, S.L. (Shark Red List Authority) Contributor/s Justification
Only one specimen of Burmese Bambooshark (Chiloscyllium burmensis
) is known (an adult male 57 cm total length). This genus of sharks needs to be revised in the region. Many of the characters used to distinguish the species vary remarkably intraspecifically. Thus, more individuals of this species are required to confirm its validity. As such it cannot be assessed beyond Data Deficient at present.
