487 subclass visa- First cousin once removed

Hey guys,

Interesting topic i've got here. I want to apply for the Skilled – Regional Sponsored (Provisional) visa (subclass 487) which stipulates that the family members who are sponsoring have to be either one of:

* a non-dependent child – including a stepchild
* a parent – including a step-parent
* a brother or sister – including a step-sibling
* a niece or nephew – including a step-niece or nephew
* an aunt or uncle – including a step-aunt or uncle
* a first cousin
* a grandchild.

Now i have a first cousin who is willing to be my sponsor. But the issue here is technically (after looking on a family chart) she is a first cousin-once removed. In other words she is my grand-aunt's daughter or my parent's first cousin. Would that be an issue when applying for the above visa? Would appreciate if someone can give their insights on this matter.

It does not match with what is considered family and that is as defined, regulations set by legislation and no variations on stuff like that I expect.
