Important note to uploaders[edit]

There are two species of Manta: Manta birostris and Manta alfredi. They are look very similar to each other, and since Manta alfredi had been introduced only in 2009 most reef guides have only Manta birostris. If you are not sure which species you have, please place your image in Category:Unidentified Manta. You can find identification guide in the paper named "Redescription of the genus Manta with resurrection of Manta alfredi" (Krefft, 1868) (Chondrichthyes; Myliobatoidei; Mobulidae)" published by ZOOTAXA (use Google for pdf download)
