Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

an all-dark longnose skate with an elongated, acutely triangular snout, and a stout tail - shorter than body and with mid-section swollen sausage-shaped; disc with narrowly rounded outer corners and smooth underside except for small denticles on snout; no thorns on nape or along back (Ref. 5578). Dark brown with irregular dark blotches dorsally; rear end of disc and pelvic fins blackish; underside dark brown with black pores and scattered lighter blotches on disc, at base of pelvic fins, around vent, and on tail (Ref. 5578).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Occurs in deeper slope waters (Ref. 4426). Feeds on benthic fishes, shrimps and crabs (Ref. 27637, Ref. 114953). Oviparous (Ref. 50449). Eggs have horn-like projections on the shell (Ref. 205). Males reaches maturity at ca. 101 cm TL (Ref. 114953).
