Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Found on the continental and insular shelves. Feeds on small bony fishes, squids, and shrimps. Reproduction is unknown but presumably similar to @C. taurus@. Uses its long body cavity and large, oily liver to regulate buoyancy. Not implicated in attacks on people. Utilized for human consumption and for its liver which has a high squalene content. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat This shark is a little-known inhabitant of deepish water in warm-temperate and tropical seas, on or near the bottom on continental and insular shelves and upper slopes at depths of 13 to 420 m, also possibly epipelagic zone in 140 to 180 m over the ocean floor. Sometimes observed by divers near dropoffs on coral reefs. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHabitat Known from seamounts and knolls [details]
