Abstract

Eleven species of dasyatids, Amphotistius kuhlii (Muller and Henle), Dasyatis brevicaudatus (Hutton), D. fluviorum Ogilby, D. guileri sp. nov., D. sephen (Forskal), D. thetidis Waite, Himantura granulata (Macleay), H. uarnak (Forskal), Taeniura brocki Schultz, T. lymma (Forskal) and Urogymnus asperrimus (Bloch and Schneider) are recognised as occurring in Australian waters. The new species is described and figured. The Australian species are keyed but no attempt was made to unravel the complicated generic synonymy of the group.
