Abstract

Structural peculiarities, sometimes unidentifiable and responsible for the creation of new species and even genera were occasionally met with among sharks and rays (Gill, 1896 ; Gudger, 1933 ; Bigelow and Shroder 1953). In the Indian species, Menon (1957) and Luther (1961) have described abnormalities in certain shark embryos and a ray respectively. On 12-2-1961, while examining a pregnant Carcharinus limbatus in the fish landing centre at Cannanore, an abnormal embryo was obtained and is briefly described in the present note.
