Red List Category & Criteria: Data Deficient ver 3.1
Year Published: 2009

Very little information is available on Scyliorhinus garmani. It is known only from very few specimens; the holotype was taken from the “East Indies” but no specific station data are available to confirm the location. A further three specimens are recorded from the Philippines and these require confirmation. Adult size is unknown, but the largest specimen measured 36 cm total length. This species cannot be assessed beyond Data Deficient without further study.

Geographic Range [top]

Range Description:Indo-West Pacific: this species is known only from very few specimens and its distribution is not well-defined. The holotype was taken from the “East Indies” but no specific station data are available to confirm the location. Three specimens were recorded from Dumaguete, Oriental Negros Province, Philippines but these require confirmation (Compagno et al. 2005 a,b). It is also possible that the “East Indies” locality of USNM–43749, collected by the RV Albatross on its 1907 to 1910 Philippine Expedition, was erroneous and that the holotype came from the Philippines (Compagno et al. 2005b).
