|Abstract:||The first occurrence of the rare viper shark, Trigonognathus kabeyai,
from the central Pacific Ocean is reported. Morphometries are compared
between this specimen and the type specimens from Japan, and this specimen
differs from the types in only a few measurements. The poor preservation of
this specimen precluded examination of internal anatomy.
