Spotted Eagle Ray (Aetobatus narinari) clinton Mon, 09 Aug 2021 05:39:03 +0000

Aetobatus laticeps should be removed from synonymy with A. narinari. Aetobatus laticeps is recognised as valid for eastern Pacific spotted eagle rays by Last et al. (2016) and Sales et al. (2019) provide further evidence of the validity of this species.




Sales et al. 2019. Phylogeography of eagle rays of the genus Aetobatus: Aetobatus narinari is restricted to the continental western Atlantic Ocean. Hydrobiologia 836(1): 169-183.

FishBase has not caught up with the taxonomy. It is now at least five years out of date with respect to this species.
