A small, poorly known deepwater catshark of the continental and insular slopes in the Caribbean at depths of 329–676 m. Reaches a maximum size of at least 54 cm total length, but little is known of the species’ biology. Despite its restricted geographic range, no trawl fisheries are currently known to operate at the depths at which this species occurs. As such, the species is assessed as Least Concern. If demersal trawl fisheries expand into this species’ range in the future, this assessment should be revisited.
