Papuan Spurdog

Local synonymy: White et al., 2018: 38, figs (PNG).

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 NADH2 sequences were found (G. Naylor, unpubl. data). More specimens needed of this species, including adults, to allow for confirmation of its exact identity.
