Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

A guitarfish with a narrow, sharply pointed snout and a narrow pectoral disc; nasal flaps extend only to the inner nostril edges (Ref. 5578). Plain olive-green above, without spots; prominent black blotch on underside of snout (Ref. 5578).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

A rare and unknown species found offshore on the shelf (Ref. 5578). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 50449). Taken as bycatch of trawl and gillnet fisheries (Ref. 114953).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturità | Riproduzione | Deposizione | Uova | Fecundity | Larve

Exhibit ovoviparity (aplacental viviparity), with embryos feeding initially on yolk, then receiving additional nourishment from the mother by indirect absorption of uterine fluid enriched with mucus, fat or protein through specialised structures (Ref. 50449).
