Dipturus kwangtungensis (Chu, 1960)


Dipturus kwangtungensis (Chu, 1960)  

Type locality: Jia-Bo, China.

The eight Taiwanese samples of D. kwangtungensis   formed a single cluster that also included a sample from Naylor et al. (2012 b) labeled as Raja   sp. 1 (GN 6181), also from Taiwan (Supplementary Material 1). Due to the nearly identical sequences of this specimen and the eight new Taiwanese samples of D. kwangtungensis   , it is most likely this specimen is also D. kwangtungensis   .
