Potamotrygon henlei


Potamotrygon henlei
Black Stingray
金点魟
Potamotrygon henlei is one of the more sought after ray species in the hobby due to its striking colours and impressive adult size. A fully grown one of these makes a stunning sight. 
The species exists in various colour forms, with either white or yellow spots and a background colour varying between black and dark brown. The pattern of spotting isn't uniform either, and some specimens possess many spots while others have far fewer. It's often confused with P. leopoldi and P14, but can be distinguished by the presence of spots on the underside of the disc. However some specimens of P. leopoldi have also been shown to exhibit this patterning.
