dc.description.abstract "The genera Hemiscyllium and Chiloscyllium and their species are revised, and two new species of Chiloscyllium are described. Hemiscyllium includes five species: H. freycineti, H. hallstromi, H. ocellatum, H. strahani, and H. trispeculare. One juvenile specimen cannot be assigned to species and differs from all known juveniles. It may represent a new species, but adults must be acquired before this can be conclusively shown. Chiloscyllium includes seven species: C. burmensis, new species, C. confusum, new species, C. hasselti, C. griseum, C. indicum, C. punctatum, and C. plagiosum. Skeletal anatomy and dermal denticles are studied and described for all species. A scheme of interrelationships within the family is proposed. The family Hemiscyllidae and the included genera of Hemiscyllium and Chiloscyllium are shown to be monophyletic"--P. 3. en_US

  • Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
    The Bulletin, published continuously since 1881, consists of longer monographic volumes in the field of natural sciences relating to zoology, paleontology, and geology. Current numbers are published at irregular intervals. The Bulletin was originally a place to publish short papers, while longer works appeared in the Memoirs. However, in the 1920s, the Memoirs ceased and the Bulletin series began publishing longer papers. A new series, the Novitates , published short papers describing new forms.
