Plesiobatis daviesi (Wallace, 1967)  

Type locality: Mozambique Channel, off mouth of Limpopo River, about 25 ° 25 ' S, 33 ° 35 ' E, South Africa.

The three Taiwanese samples of P. daviesi   included in this analysis formed a single cluster that includes previously collected samples from Malaysian Borneo and the Philippines (Supplementary Material 1; Naylor et al., 2012 a). These represent only the western North Pacific component of the Indo-West and Central Pacific distribution of this species.
