RAJIDAE 

Raja africana Capapé, 1977  , validity of this species is questioned by Compagno (1999), it was indicated as a not valid species by Serena (2005) who remarks the absence of type material. Nevertheless, the species is cited for the Algerian basin ( Hemida et al., 2007) and prudently included in the checklist of elasmobranchs occurring in the Mediterranean Sea ( Bradai et al., 2010).

Raja rondeleti Bougis, 1959  , the taxonomic status of this species is doubtful; the original description is probably based on an abnormal specimen of R. fullonica  ( Tortonese, 1987; Serena, 2005). According to the latter author, four records from the French and Italian coasts are to be considered doubtful.
