An annotated checklist of the chondrichthyan fishes (sharks, batoids and chimaeras) of the world is presented. As of 7 November 2015, the number of species totals 1188, comprising 16 orders, 61 families and 199 genera. The checklist includes nine orders, 34 families, 105 genera and 509 species of sharks; six orders, 24 families, 88 genera and 630 species of batoids (skates and rays); one order, three families, six genera and 49 species of holocephalans (chimaeras). The most speciose shark… 
Checklist of the marine and estuarine fishes of Chiapas, Mexico
TLDR
A systematic checklist is presented for the marine estuarine fishes of Chiapas, Mexico, including notes on their zoogeography and conservation status, and taxonomic identifications should be updated and the geographic distributions should be documented in order to design and implement effective management and conservation programs.
Updated taxonomic list and conservation status of chondrichthyans from the exclusive economic zone of Venezuela, with first generic and specific records.
Using the last taxonomic review of chondrichthyans of the world, we selected the species distributed in the north-western Atlantic Ocean (NWA) and compare it with the available published literature

An Annotated List of Cartilaginous Fishes (Chondrichthyes: Elasmobranchii, Holocephali) of the Coastal Waters of Sakhalin Island and the Adjacent Southern Part of the Sea of Okhotsk
An annotated list of cartilaginous fish (Chondrichthyes: Elasmobranchii, Holocephali) is given for the first time in the 200-year history of studying the ichthyofauna of Sakhalin Island and adjacent
Checklist of marine elasmobranchs of Colombia
A review and update to the shark and ray species recorded for the marine waters of Colombia was carried out. A total of 206 species had been recorded in the literature, of which 138 species (76
First report on a diverse Neogene cartilaginous fish fauna from Borneo (Ambug Hill, Brunei Darussalam)
TLDR
A diverse fossil cartilaginous fish fauna from Borneo, found in late Miocene sediments in Brunei Darussalam, provides the first insight into the types of fishes that existed in the IAA region about 6.5–8 million years ago.

An annotated checklist of the chondrichthyans of Taiwan.
TLDR
This represents the first detailed, evidence-based checklist of chondrichthyans from Taiwanese waters in over 40 years and contains verified voucher material for each species where available and potential taxonomic issues are high-lighted when applicable.
Introduction to the systematics and biodiversity of sharks, rays, and chimaeras (Chondrichthyes) of Taiwan.
TLDR
The overall species diversity of Taiwan's chondrichthyan fauna is comparable to that of other adjacent marine zoogeographic hotspots, e.g. Japan, and each of these groups may increase in relative diversity with improved taxonomic resolution resulting from the incorporation of molecular tools and renewed morphological studies.
A review of the taxonomy of chondrichthyan fishes: a modern perspective.
TLDR
The important role of chondrichthyan taxonomy for conservation management has been highlighted in recent years with new species descriptions or taxonomic resolution of a number of threatened species, and closer examination of other wide-ranging species has shown that they consist of species complexes, highlighting the need for critical re-examination.
Contribution to the Taxonomy and Distribution of Six Shark Species (Chondrichthyes, Elasmobranchii) from the Gulf of Thailand
TLDR
It could be proven that the teeth morphologically deviate strongly from those shown in literature due to having much larger cusps, and the known distribution area of Paragaleus randalli could be extended considerably eastwards by about 2000 km.
Beyond Jaws: rediscovering the ‘lost sharks’ of southern Africa§
TLDR
Despite increased chondrichthyan awareness and popularity, most research and conservation efforts centre on a few charismatic species, while the future of little-known species remains ‘lost’ from the public and scientific consciousness.
Biodiversity and systematics of skates (Chondrichthyes: Rajiformes: Rajoidei)
TLDR
Skates are primarily marine benthic dwellers found from the intertidal down to depths in excess of 3,000 m, but are replaced in shallower, warm temperate to tropical waters by stingrays (Myliobatodei).
A revision of the western North Pacific swellsharks, genus Cephaloscyllium Gill 1862 (Chondrichthyes: Carcharhiniformes: Scyliorhinidae), including descriptions of two new species.
TLDR
It is concluded that the former is a junior synonym of the latter species, and the two new Taiwanese species can be separated from other WNP species by color pattern, shape of the anterior nasal flap, anal and dorsal-fin size, internarial width, and mouth size.
A review of the genus Cephaloscyllium (Chondrichthyes: Carcharhiniformes: Scyliorhinidae) from Taiwanese waters.
TLDR
Sharks of the genus Cephaloscyllium from Taiwan were reviewed and four species were recognized as valid n Taiwanese waters; C. formosanum is resurrected herein and is included as an Appendix.
A revisionary study of the genus Mobula Rafinesque, 1810 (Chondrichthyes: Mobulidae) with the description of a new species
TLDR
All Mobula species are marine tropical-subtropical, and three are probably worldwide; M. japanica and M. mobular range into warm temperate waters.
First records of the rare eelpout Lycenchelys xanthoptera Anderson, 1991 (Teleostei, Zoarcidae) in the Ross Sea, Antarctica
TLDR
Examination of the zoarcids in this valuable new material revealed 6 specimens assignable to the genus Lycenchelys Gill, taken from stomach samples of toothfish and Antarctic starry skate caught on baited longlines and discussed the possible disjunct distribution pattern.
