Rhinobatos schlegelii Müller & Henle, 1841


Rhinobatos schlegelii Müller & Henle, 1841

Type locality: Japan

Four samples were analysed in total, two of which were preliminary identified as R. formosensis Norman 1926 , two as R. schlegelii . After further morphological investigation, all samples were referred to as R. schlegelii . All samples cluster together (Supplementary Material 1). The status of R. formosensis and R. schlegelii are currently under revision, it is likely that R. formosensis is a junior synonym of Rhinobatos schlegelii . The clade forms a distinct lineage sister to R. hynnicephalus (Supplementary Material 1). It is worth noting that specimens in this cluster were also clearly distinct from the R. cf. schlegelii (GN4326) specimen from the Philippines, and thus is not conspecific with this currently unresolved species.
