Taxon Notes:Mustelus sp B (sensu Last & Stevens, 1994) was split into two species that were described by White & Last (2008), namely, Mustelus walkeri (a Qld species coded as 37 017011) and Mustelus stevensi (a WA species coded as 37 017012). The code 37 017004 was made non-active because the voucher for the species is on loan and does not fit the distribution of either of the two new species listed above.
Common/Standard Name Notes: "gummy shark" is the marketing name for this species
