|Range of C. barbifer in dark blue and C. australis in light blue.|
The mandarin dogfish, Cirrhigaleus barbifer, is a dogfish, a member of the family Squalidae in the order Squaliformes. It is found at depths of 140–650 metres (460–2,130 ft) off southern Japan, Taiwan, and Indonesia (Bali and Lombok). Populations off Australia and New Zealand were formerly included in this species, but in 2007 these were assigned to a new species, C. australis. It is not clear which of these species is involved in other populations from the tropical West Pacific.
