PNGAbout PNG voucher material: (1 spec.) NTUM 11497, female 243 mm TL, west of New Hanover , New Ireland, 2°21’ S, 149°56’ E, 340–465 m depth, 6 Sep. 2014.GoogleMaps 

Remarks: Very close to Squalus edmundsi White, Last & Stevens, 2007  from Indonesia and Australia but slight differences in the NADH 2 sequences were found (G. Naylor, unpubl. data). More specimens needed of this species, including adults, to allow for confirmation of its exact identity.
