Abstract

Hemiscyllium modestum, Günther. Chiloscyllium modestum, Günther, Proc. Zool. Soc., 1871, p. 654, pl liv. (Plate iv., fig. 1; and Fig. 9). On the 7th September last, the Trustees received from Mr. E. C. Haviland seven foetal sharks, removed from one female. The parent was not forwarded with the young, but Mr. Haviland has since supplied the following particulars:mdash;During a holiday, spent at Port Macquarie, New South Wales, he caught three 'dog-fishes' off the rocks on the ocean side; they were taken with a line among rocks and sea-weed in about five fathoms, and he understood that the species was common in the locality.
