Abstract

A record of a juvenile Porbeagle, Lamna nasus, in the coastal waters of Argentina is confirmed by DNA barcoding, since the specimen lacked some external diagnostic features. We discuss the occurrence of this species in the coastal waters of Argentina, its molecular affinity with conspecifics from a broad range of the species, and relevant conservation issues.
