Taxon Notes:The polyphyletic genus Dasyatis, once thought to consist of 36 species with widespread distributions in tropical and temperate seas, now applies to a monophyletic group of five small to medium-sized species found in the Atlantic (including the Mediterranean Sea) and SW Indian Ocean (see Last et al 2016, Zootaxa 4139). Although there are no Australian species in genus Dasyatis, this code has been retained for historical data.
