Caudal fin with a pronounced subterminal notch but without a ventral lobe (Ref. 13575 ). Genus: Nostrils subterminal on snout; pre-oral snout long, mouth closer to eyes than snout tip; eyes and supraorbital ridges hardly elevated; no black hood on head or large spot or spots on sides of body above pectoral fins (Ref. 43278 ). Caudal fin with a pronounced subterminal notch but without a ventral lobe (Ref. 13575 ). Species: Young and adults with transverse dark bands and numerous white or bluish spots (Ref. 13575 , 43278 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A common but little-known inshore bottom shark (Ref. 247 ); found on rocks and coral reefs (Ref. 90102 ). Feeds on bony fishes and crustaceans (Ref. 43278 ). Oviparous (Ref. 43278 , 50449 ). Utilized for human consumption (Ref. 247 ) and used in Chinese medicine (Ref. 12166 ). Caught by multiple hook and line and trawl (Ref. 47736 ). Caught rarely by demersal gillnet fisheries operating inshore (Ref.58048).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous, paired eggs are laid. Embryos feed solely on yolk (Ref. 50449 ). Hatches at 10-13 cm TL. In Taiwan, hatching occurs in June to August (Ref.58048).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 25.3 - 29.1, mean 28.7 °C (based on 1458 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00407 (0.00181 - 0.00918), b=3.09 (2.89 - 3.29), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.0   ±0.67 se; based on food items. Generation time: 6.1 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median ln(3)/K based on 2 growth studies. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Fec assumed to be <100). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100). Price category (Ref. 80766 ):   Unknown . Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 18 [4, 70] mg/100g; Iron = 0.44 [0.11, 1.21] mg/100g; Protein = 19.7 [17.4, 21.8] %; Omega3 = 0.0938 [, ] g/100g; Selenium = 29.8 [8.0, 80.9] μg/100g; VitaminA = 43.7 [15.7, 112.0] μg/100g; Zinc = 0.791 [0.379, 1.672] mg/100g (wet weight);
