Taxon Notes:Added based on Stewart (2015, Fishes of NZ), who recognised both T. jacksonensis and T. trachypterus from Tasmania. Confirmed from Port Philip Bay, Vic and southern Tas. Australian distribution likely more widespread but due to confusion with T. jacksonensis (37 271001) needs further investigation. Also known from NZ, Japan, South Africa, eastern Atlantic and Mediterranean.
