  Comment: ITIS provisionally treats family Onchobothriidae as valid here; however, '...until [genus Onchobothrium's] placement relative to the other genera can be determined with some confidence, the 12 elasmobranch-hosted genera remain essentially without family designations' (Caira and Jensen, eds., 2017)  



Disclaimer: ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available, and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties. However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes. While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have been published in the Federal Register.
