Etymology This species is named in honor of Dr. Eugenie Clark, a pioneer in the field of marine science broadly, and elasmobranch biology in the Gulf of Mexico specifically. Among her many accomplishments, Dr. Clark completed multiple submersible dives, led hundreds of research expeditions, and founded Mote Marine Laboratory in Southwest Florida which continues to conduct research in the Gulf of Mexico and abroad. Dr. Clark’s dedication to elasmobranch biology and marine conservation has served as a source of inspiration for countless scientists, including these authors. [details]
