This study provides new distributional and morphological information for two recently described species of catsharks (Carcharhiniformes, Scyliorhinidae) from Brazil. Scyliorhinus cabofriensis Soares, Gomes & Carvalho, 2016, originally described from off Cabo Frio, state of Rio de Janeiro (536 m depth) is recorded in deeper waters (647 m) off northern Rio de Janeiro, and Scyliorhinus ugoi Soares, Gadig & Gomes, 2015, previously known from the Caribbean Sea to Rio de Janeiro (depth unknown), is reported off the state of Santa Catarina, southern Brazil, at 825 m. Morphometric data are provided for all the specimens examined.
