Dasyatis americana






 Dasyatis americana (Southern ray) 

A recent addition to Mike Iannibeli's marine tank (a new 75 gallon). Photos by Mike.

Stingrays, family Dasyatidae: Marine, brackish, freshwater (the subfamily Potamotrygoninae, which I have as a family here). Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. Nine genera, 69 species. To distinguish from the Round Stingrays, no caudal fin, tail longer than body, body disc more than 1.3 times as wide as long.

Dasyatis americana (Hildebrand & Schroeder 1928), the Southern Stingray. Western Atlantic; New Jersey to Brazil. To over six feet in diameter. A full and business end view of a specimen in Tobago in the Lower Antilles. 

The following comment was received by Season Klein, in November 2003:

Your southern stingray is actually an Atlantic stingray Dasyatis sabina I study both rays in South Carolina as part of my doctorate.  I just thought you would like to know.
