Range Description

The Shortspine Chimaera is known from only three specimens caught in east Australian waters off Tuncurry, New South Wales (32⁰06'S, 153⁰09'E) (K. Graham unpublished data), but has been reported from Ulladulla (New South Wales) north to Townsville (Queensland) (Last and Stevens 1994). The latter records require validation as they are most likely a different species.
