Resumen: "The taxonomy and distribution of 2 deep water sharks, Mustelus sinusmexicanus and Hexanchus nakamurai, is discussed here on the basis of 3 specimens from the Gulf of Mexico. Both species are distributed in the area; however, they are rarely found in ichthyological collections as they are seldom caught and due to the challenge of curating such large specimens. Thus, this is the first time that Gulf Smooth hound and Bigeye Sixgill shark specimens have been curated in a Mexican ichthyological collection, confirming its presence in México."
