AuthorsP. Clerkin, D. Ebert
AbstractThe false catshark, Pseudotriakis microdon, is a large-bodied, poorly known deepwater shark, with a global distribution, except for the eastern Pacific and South Atlantic oceans. Here we report the first record of the false catshark from the southeastern Atlantic. The specimen, estimated to be approximately 290 cm in total length, was observed via an unmanned submersible 700 m depth off the western slope of Valdivia Seamount (26.2° S, 6.3° E).
