Centrophorus cf. lusitanicus 

Type locality: possibly undescribed.

The two Taiwanese samples C. cf. lusitanicus  included in this analysis (GN 10189 and GN 10190) formed a single cluster with another sample identified as Centrophorus  sp. 2 (GN 974; see Naylor et al., 2012 a, b) also from Taiwan (Supplementary Material 1, Figure 1). These three samples are similar to a sample identified as C. sp. 3 (GN 4348) from the Philippines. They are distinct from a morphologically similar species from off Madagascar, which has also been informally identified as C. cf. lusitanicus  (GN 2011). This species is closest morphologically to C. lusitanicus  described from off Portugal but is considered to be distinct from this species and probably undescribed. A comprehensive taxonomic revision of this genus, including this species, is in progress.
