A pair of rays caught by line from 1300fm westward of the English Channel have been identified as Raja richardsoni Garrick known only from the type specimen also taken by line in New Zealand waters from about the same depth. The Plymouth rays agree well with the New Zealand fish in proportional measurements, in bearing denticles on both surfaces, and in the absence of spines; but differ slightly in colour, in their smaller number of teeth, and in the greater development of a lateral process on the nasal flap.
