Morphological comparison of the holotype of Apristurus atlanticus with many specimens of A. laurussoniiA. parvipinnis and A. canutus revealed that the holotype of A. atlanticus is a juvenile of A. laurussonii. The differences observed between the holotypes of A. atlanticus and A. laurussonii are explained by size difference. As a result, A. atlanticus is placed under synonymy of A. laurussonii.
