Listado anotado de los tiburones, rayas y quimeras (Chondrichthyes, Elasmobranchii, Holocephali) de México

Latest version published by Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona on Nov 30, 2018 Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona

An annotated checklist of the species of sharks, rays and chimaeras (chondrichthyan fishes) occurring in Mexican waters is presented, based on a thorough review of the literature and electronic database searches, examination of museum collection specimens, and unpublished records obtained during fieldwork conducted in the last four years. The checklist contains information of at least 214 species of chondrichthyan fishes that ocur in Mexican marine and brackish waters, assigned to 84 genera, 40 families and 14 orders. It includes eight species of chimaeras, 95 of batoids and 111 of sharks. Mexican´s chondrichthyan fauna is one of the richest in the world, with almost 17.3% of the known species. Additionally, 16 species are included, as their occurrence in Mexican marine waters is probable according with distributional patterns.
