Bluespotted ribbontail ray (Taeniura lymma) by PhotoStock-Israel The bluespotted ribbontail ray (Taeniura lymma) is a species of stingray in the family Dasyatidae. Found from the intertidal zone to a depth of 30 m (100 ft), this species is common throughout the tropical Indian and western Pacific Oceans in nearshore, coral reef-associated habitats. This ray is capable of injuring humans with its venomous tail spines, though it prefers to flee if threatened. Because of its beauty and size, the bluespotted ribbontail ray is popular with private aquarists despite being poorly suited to captivity. Photographed in the Red Sea Israel

Butterleap and Bluespots for the name rate thing?

unless they were a kittypet or something, butter- isn’t a prefix. if you’re referring to the flower (buttercups?), maybe dandelion, marigold, mustard, and goldenrod would be better flowers. bluespots is nice, as blue is a surprisingly underused prefix. so is spots.
