Two new species of stingray have been discovered in the Amazon rain forest. The stingrays which have been likened to pancakes are the first new stingray genus to be found in the Amazon in more than 20 years. They have been named Heliotrygon gomesi and Heliotrygon rosai and feature slits on their bellies and a tiny spine of their tails.
