Hemiscyllium henryi is a species of bamboo shark in the family Hemiscylliidae. Together with H. galei, it was only scientifically described in 2008.[1][2] At present, H. henryi is only known from depths of 3 to 30 metres (9.8 to 98.4 ft) at reefs near Triton Bay on the southern coast of West Papua, Indonesia.[1] It reaches a length of 81.5 centimetres (32.1 in), and is covered in numerous fine black spots.
