    Abstract

    The morphometric characteristics of the pelagic stingray Pteroplatytrygon violacea (Bonaparte, 1832) are described for the first time from the Indian waters. The specimen was collected at Cochin in August, 2008. The mature male specimen measured 102 cm in total length, 47 cm in disc width, 35 cm in disc length and weighed 2.5 kg. The morphometric characteristics of the specimen were very similar to that described from the North Sea.
