Abstract

Galeus springeri n. sp. is described from the Caribbean Sea and was previously included with the subspecific complex of Galeus arae (Scyliorhinidae). It is distinguished from congeners by the combination of the presence of a ventral precaudal crest of enlarged denticles, longitudinal striped pattern, and greater number of monospondylous and diplospondylous vertebrae. Galeus springeri is sympatric with Galeus arae antillensis and is found off the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and Cuba.
