    The Arabian Sicklefin Chimaera (Neoharriotta pumila) inhabits waters off Socotra, Yemen and Somalia at depths of 100–1,120 m. It may have a wider distribution in the Indian Ocean, particularly at depths of 1,000 m or more. The maximum size is around 65 cm total length, but biology is poorly-known. There are no targeted fisheries for the species and it is not known from bycatch given its deep occurrence. As there are currently no known threats to this species, it is therefore listed as Least Concern.
