Abstract
    Galeus atlanticus (Vaillant, 1888) is resurrected as a valid species based on 26 specimens from the Alboran Sea. Comparison was made with 50 specimens of the other three species of the genus Galeus from the north eastern Atlantic, G. melastomus, G. murinus and G. polli. External morphological characters, different modes of reproduction and chondrocranial measurements allow separation of all these species.
