Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

This species is characterized by absence of skin fold on the ventral surface of the tail; quadrangular profile of disc; whip-like tail variably banded; adults' upper surface with widely spaced, honeycomb-like reticulations; juveniles with relatively large spots on disc (Ref. 58048).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Found inshore on soft substrates. Viviparous, with histotrophy. Few biological information is available, diet presumably consists of crustaceans and small fishes. Caught occasionally in demersal tangle nets; meat, skin (of high value) and cartilage are utilized (Ref. 58048).
