Species record and mistaken identifications: the case of bull sharks at Chumphon Pinnacle, Thailand

  • Juerg M. Brunnschweiler (a1)

Sharks of the genus Carcharhinus encountered at Chumphon Pinnacle, Gulf of Thailand, have been misidentified by divers as grey reef sharks (Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos). Based on a set of characteristic diagnostic features, the sharks are identified as bull sharks (Carcharhinus leucas).
