Mobula hypostoma

Atlantic Devil Ray

Year Described

Bancroft, 1831

Other Notes

Mobula rochebrunei was described for the eastern Atlantic population of “small” devil rays but is now considered synonymous with the western Atlantic M. hypostoma. These populations are most related to the eastern Pacific Mobula munkiana and more work needs to be done to determine if M. rochebrunei is a separate species.
