Range DescriptionThis undescribed species is known as Apristurus sp. G in Last and Stevens (1994) and is represented in Australia by several populations which are distinct from each other and may be separate species. Their relationship to the similar western North Pacific catshark Apristurus herklotsi, has yet to be determined. Further research is required to resolve these taxonomic problems.
This widely distributed deep-water catshark is found along the Australian continental slope at depths of 590 to 1,000 m.
