Abstract:
Richard's skate was first described off New Zealand in 1961. Among the features of this deep-water skate are a diamond-shaped body and brown to gray coloration dorsally and ventrally. Few have been collected worldwide since 1961; however, recent searches of the literature have revealed two specimens that had been collected off the North Carolina coast in 1974.

Abstract:
Correll describes an unusual fish, a skate, found in the state's coastal waters. It has a skeleton like a shark, flaps its wing-like fins like a bird to help it glide through the water, and is so flat that it is often described as a pancake. The name derives from an old Norse word which meant long, narrow, and pointed.
