|C. harrissoni is very close to C. uyato and may be a junior synonym of that species. C. armatus barbatus Teng, 1962, is apparently not conspecific with Atractophorus armatus Gilchrist, 1922 (= Centrophorus moluccensis , but may instead be based on a juvenile (with barbed dorsal spines of C. harrissoni or C. uyato. C. harrissani itself is very close to C. uyato, and may be a junior synonym of that species.|
