Remarks: Compagno & Niem (1998a) first documented this species from off northern PNGAbout PNG. Found to be a common catch in deepwater off Lae during recent fish surveys using rod and line (F. Neira, MARSCCO, pers. comm.) in November 2016. Has previously been referred to as Centrophorus armatus  elsewhere (e.g. Chen & Cheng, 1982) so earlier records of C. armatus  in PNGAbout PNG ( Filewood, 1973) may refer to this species.
