    The Dwarf False Catshark (Planonasus parini) is endemic to the Arabian Seas region, where it is known from only three specimens taken off Socotra Island, Yemen. It occurs at depths beyond any current fisheries (560-1,120 m). The only known specimens of this species were taken on survey trawls in the late 1980s and no additional specimens of this species are known. It appears to occur in very deep water, beyond normal fishing operations, and there are no other known threats. Therefore it is assessed as Least Concern, although further information is required on its distribution and biology.
