|Range of the rasptooth dogfish (in blue)|
The rasptooth dogfish, Miroscyllium sheikoi, is a dogfish, the only species in the genus Miroscyllium, found on the Kyushu-Palau Ridge in the northwest Pacific Ocean at depths of 360 m. Its maximum length is unknown. The genus is represented in this time period by the extinct species M.sp., whose fossilized teeth have been recovered from the Miocene (23.03–5.332 Ma) strata in Vaucluse, southwestern France.
