Jenkins Whiptail Ray (Himantura Jenkinsii)

I came across this very large and equally uncommon ray during a very enjoyable dive at Aow Mao Bay, Koh Tao.

Although i can't be 100% certain, the most likely candidate is the Jenkins Whiptail Ray (Himantura Jenkinsii).

This Sting-Ray was photographed at Sail Rock, laying on the bottom at a depth of around 25m. Although it is most likely to be a member of the "Whiptail" genus (Himantura), i've not been able to identify exactly what species it is.
