Abstract

The Rough-tail sting-ray, Dasyatis centroura (MitchiU), is recorded for the first time from Indian waters. A description of the species based on a male measuring 242 cm in length, obtained during an exploratory trawling by M. V. Bluefin from the upper continental slope off the west coast of India, is given with illustrations, and its variations from the species from the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, as has been noted from their descriptions, are detailed.
