 This figure is from a fantasy animal set by TAKARA TOMY A.R.T.S. and is named Otokomaei.
 Could anybody say which real species of ray this might be?



 ....... unfortunately it has a stupid human face on its belly.

I've seen that ray--from above, it lookks really good. The ventral face is unforunate.

But compared to the other fiugres in that set, it's at least subtle.

As for species, no idea.

Hardly my specialty but if I had to guess I'd put my money on a skate rather than a ray. The pointed "tip" of the face and sharply featured anal(?) fins are characteristics that can be found on skates or rays, but are common to all skates (to my knowledge, which is very limited). Combined with the thick body and thorn like projections my money would be on a skate being the inspiration.

The overall body shape is more dasyatid than rajid though. It may be just some sort of made up thing. Or a deepwater ray of some kind.

Yes, but they're also a bit two-faced, aren't they?  ;D Honestly, I think both versions look quite good and luckily that human face is invisible from above. :)

I just caught this post--and noticed that the McDonalds one looks a lot like a butterfly ray...which would be really, really unusual as a figure. Any more information about it?

Animal Planet made that Raja miraletus, not Chap Mei, this was a set of mostly cartoony marine animals clearly marketed to younger children. Sadly my ray lost the tip of its tail many years ago, but the set had a few nice fish and a spider crab as well.
