Etymology: Hemitriakis: hemi-, from hemisys (Gr.), half, being a genus that Herre believed was “most closely related” to Triakis. (See ETYFish); indroyonoi: In honor of Indroyono Soesilo (b. 1955), geologist, engineer and Chairman, Marine and Fisheries Research Agency (Jakarta, Indonesia), “who has provided a great deal of support for shark research in Indonesia and was a strong advocate for the production of the field guide to sharks and rays of Indonesia”. (See ETYFish).

Marine; demersal. Tropical; 9°N - 8°N, 115°E - 117°E
Indian Ocean: eastern Indonesia (Ref. 80994) and India (Ref. 118627).
Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?, range 90 - ? cm
Max length : 120 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 123599)
Presumably occurring on the outer continental shelf and upper slope. Females have litters of 6-11 where reproductive mode is viviparous, with histotrophy (no yolk-sac placenta); size at birth about 28- 30 cm TL (Ref. 80994).
