Abstract

Our knowledge of the deep sea elasmobranchs of the seas around India is far from satisfactory. ALCOCK(1 889, 1891, 1898, 1899) described Raja mamillidens, Paracentroscyllium ornatum, Scyllium hispidum, Centrophorus rossi, Scyllium quagga, Raja powellii, R. johannis-davisi and Benthobatis moresbyi based on the collection of the "Investigator" from the seas around India; BRAUER(1 906) reported five deep sea elasmobranchs from the Indian waters and described a new species Scylliorhinus indicus from the Gulf of Aden
