Rhinobatos hynnicephalus Richardson, 1846  

Type locality: probably China Seas, Canton, China (no types known).

The three Taiwanese samples included in this study formed a single cluster, sister to R. schlegelii   from Taiwan (Supplementary Material 1). The samples were preliminary identified as R. schlegelii   but later assigned to R. hynnicephalus   (B. Séret, pers. comm.).
