AbstractThe dwarf false catshark, Planonasus parini, is a soft, stout to slender bodied poorly known deepwater shark, known previously only from the Socotra Islands, southwestern India, and possibly off the Maldives. Here we report on the first record of the Dwarf False Catshark from Sri Lanka, Southwest Bay of Bengal. The specimen, estimated to be approximately 55 cm in total length, was caught by a local fisherman between 300 m and 600 m depth off Trincomalee Outer Harbour near Norway Inlet (08 29'.136N, 81 14'.783E).
