remarks: Ref.: HOWE, J.C. & SPRINGER, V.G. (1993) Catalog of type specimens of recent fishes in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, 5: Sharks (Chondrichthyes: Selachii). Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, (540): i-iii, 1-19: This specimen was originally one of several cataloged as SU 6863. Jordan and Snyder (1902) stated that their description of E. lucifer was taken from "specimens [number unspecified] from Misaki...from the collection of Capt. Alan Owston, No. 6863, Stanford University oological Museum." At the time of Jordan and Snyder's description, the Owston specimens were syntypes. Jordan and Snyder also mentioned that 30 other specimens were obtained off Misaki by K. Aoki, but no descriptive data derived from these were presented, and they cannot be considered as type specimens according to ICZN 72(b) (vi). Three of Aoki's specimens are cataloged as USNM 50254. Bohlke (1953) incorrectly considered the one specimen, then contained in SU 6863, to be the holotype, but in so doing he effectively designated it lectotype, ccording to ICZN Article 74(b). But: Compagno et al. 2005:54 [ref. 29145] are incorect in stating that there is a lectotype.
