Dasyatis aff. hastata DeKay, 1842 

A photograph taken by Jean Louis Testori near Pedra da Galé, Príncipe Island, shows a species very similar to the western Atlantic Dasyatis hastata DeKay, 1842  . Bernard Seret (pers. comm. to PW in May 2006) wrote that this stingray is probably a similar but distinct species.
