    The Shortbelly Catshark (Apristurus breviventralis) is known from only nine specimens from the Gulf of Aden around the Socotra Islands, Yemen. It occurs at 1,000-1,120 m depth, reaches at least 48.5 cm total length, but its biology is virtually unknown. It is assessed as Least Concern due to its deep-water habitat and the lack of fisheries where it occurs. A reassessment may be required as more information is obtained on the full range of its occurrence in the region.
