The 1650 mm TL specimen is one of the three largest M. mustelus reported troughout its range. The pregnant female carrying 17 full-term embryos was caught in an unknown locality of the Adriatic Sea and was brought to the fish market in Milano, Italy. Morphometrics and a description of the specimen and its pups are presented.
