Gulf Catshark Description
  The gulf catshark is similar to a number of different species in this genus that live in Australian seas, many of which have yet to be formally described. Members of this genus have no nasoral grooves, the nasal flaps do not reach the mouth, the anal fin is about the same size or slightly larger than second dorsal and positioned far in front of its origin. The gulf catshark is most easily distinguished by its color pattern, which consists of white spots on a dark brown or mottled grayish brown background, while the ventral surface is lighter and unspotted.
