Info

In contrast to Taeniura lymma, Taeniura lessoni does not have blue lines extending the entire length of the tail,

This blue spotted ray is a shallow water coral reef associated ray that also encounters the blue spotted ray Taeniura lymma in its habitat.

Because of the immediately eye-catching balled dots on the top of the body, mistaken identifications are easy.

Nothing is known about the biology and ecology of Taeniura lessoni.
