Taxon Notes:The code 37 015002 likely refers to multiple Asymbolus species, including, A. analis (now 37 015027), A. occiduus (37 015026) and A. rubiginosus (37 015024). Several species of Asymbolus were first separated in the early 1990’s for Last & Stevens 1994 Sharks & Rays of Australia 1st edition and the revision of the genus with new species was published in 1999. May & Maxwell's (1986) Trawl Fish from Temperate Waters of Australia synopsis of 'Asymbolus analis' (37 015002) could refer to at least the above 3 species based on the description (the image on p96 is A. occiduus).
