The family Potamotrygonidae is the only monophyletic group between the extant elasmobranchs, being the only exclusive to freshwater environment and endemic to south american rivers. Despite its monophyly, this group has considerable taxonomic problems, thus its great dorsal coloration and patterns variation and the lack of a great number of diagnostic characters, resulting in erroneos i...
The family Potamotrygonidae comprises approximately 25 species in four valid genera. Potamotrygon scobina Garman 1913, was described based on a juvenile male specimen, from the lower Rio Tocantins (Cameta), but P. scobina has already been collected in a number of other localities in the Amazon basin. This variation makes it uncertain whether Potamotrygon scobina is actually a species co...
