From other sources
Habitat Apoorly known, bottom-dwelling shark that inhabits the outer continental shelves and upper slopes and is found off
seamounts, but rarely occurs at the surface or in shallow water close inshore. Most records are on or near the continental
slopes between 270 and 960 m deep but down to at least 1 300 m, sometimes in shallower shelf waters at 95 to 137 m.
Seamount records suggest that the species is oceanic or semioceanic in addition to its known occurrences off continental
slopes. [details]
