The Bottlenose Wedgefish (Rhynchobatus australiae) commonly occurs in inshore waters on the continental shelves of tropical Indo-West Pacific. This species rarely occurs deeper than 60 m. As bottom dwellers, they rest on mud, sandy, or rough bottoms and feed on benthic invertebrates, crustaceans, molluscs and small bottom-dwelling fish.

Bottle shape snout slightly constricted near tip.

3 white spots aligned over pectoral marking. Usually 2 spots below.
