The pelagic stingray (Pteroplatytrygon violacea) is a species of stingray in the family Dasyatidae. It is characterized by the wedge-like shape of its pectoral fin disc, which is much wider than long, as well as by the pointed teeth in both sexes, whip-like tail with extremely long tail spine, and uniform violet to blue-green coloration. The distribution of the pelagic stingray extends nearly worldwide in tropical to warm-temperate pelagic waters.
