The white ghost catshark, Apristurus aphyodes, is a shark of the family Scyliorhinidae found in deep water in the northeast Atlantic between latitudes 57°N and 58°N. A deep-water catshark known from the eastern North Atlantic from depths of 1,014 to 1,800 m, it is known from only a limited number of specimens. It reaches a maximum of 54 cm total length, but little known of its biology. Insufficient information is available to assess the species' status, so it is to be considered Data Deficient.
