List of United States Navy amphibious warfare ships

This is a list of United States Navy amphibious warfare ships. This type of ship has been in use with the US Navy since World War I. Ship status is indicated as either active, inactive, or precommissioning. Ships in the inactive category include all. Ships in the precommissioning category include ships on order. USS Duane USS Crescent City USS Charles Carroll USS Monrovia USS Calvert USS Doyen USS Feland USS Edward Rutledge USS Harry Lee USS Joseph Hewes USS John Penn USNS Montford Point USNS John Glenn USS Lewis B. Puller USS Hershel "Woody" Williams USNS Miguel Keith • Not to be confused with hull code "HST" for "High Speed Transport" assigned only to experimental high-speed catamaran designs, high-speed catamarans chartered from private ferry companies; the United States Navy built 932 Landing Craft Infantry ships in World War II. A list can be found here; the United States Navy built 11,144 landing craft Motorized, designated "Landing Craft Mechanized" or "LCM", in World War II. The following ships are converted escort carriers that were numbered along with the Iwo Jima-class, though they are not a part of that class.

USS Block Island was a Commencement Bay-class escort carrier designated LPH-1 in preparation for conversion into an amphibious assault ship, but cancelled. Towards the end of World War II the United States Navy built 558 Landing Ship Medium type vessels across three classes. List of United States Navy Landing Ship Medium The United States Navy built nearly 1,200 tank landing ships, classified as "Landing Ship, Tank" or "LST", from the World War II-era up through the early 1970s.

Ocellate river stingray

The ocellate river stingray known as the peacock-eye stingray or black river stingray, is a species of freshwater stingray in the family Potamotrygonidae. It was the first species to be described in the family and is the most widespread, ranging throughout much of the Río de la Plata, Amazon and Orinoco basins in tropical and subtropical South America, it is sometimes kept in aquaria. P. motoro varies in appearance and morphology over its large range, a taxonomic review of the Amazonian populations is expected. The taxonomy of the populations in the Río de la Plata Basin was reviewed in 2013, leading to the finding that P. motoro is found throughout, but that there are two additional members of this species complex: P. amandae and P. pantanensis. Two distinctive Amazonian types lack black-edged yellow-orange spots: The so-called "Mantilla ray", CD4, in Peru and adjacent parts of Brazil, the similar but paler CD5 from rivers near Marajó. Both CD4 and CD5 co-occur with normal variants of P. motoro.

In 2019, they were described as P marquesi. Recognized members of the species complex found elsewhere are P. boesemani, P. jabuti, P. ocellata, but the last may be a synonym of P. motoro. P. motoro can grow up to 50 cm in disc width, 1 m in total length, 35 kg in weight. Its disk is circular in shape, its eyes are raised from the dorsal surface; the dorsal coloration is beige or brown, with numerous yellow-orange spots with dark rings. Its exact color, the arrangement and size of the spots can vary both from individual to individual and depending on location. Three primary types have been identified in the Amazon basin, but each of these include a number of subtypes; the two main Amazonian types, informally known as CD1 and CD2, are found throughout much of the Amazon and they occur together. Those from the Río de la Plata Basin and Mearim River resemble CD1. Individuals from the Rio Negro and Orinoco basins are similar to each other and informally known as CD3, but differ from P. motoro elsewhere.

Some individuals of CD3 have spots near the rim of the disc that are connected, forming a chain-like pattern. However, the "marbled" type is only reported from the Orinoco basin, including the Ventuari River. Ocellate river stingrays are sometimes kept in captivity, with requirements similar to other members of Potamotrygon, it is one of the most popular species of freshwater stingrays, but requires a large tank.
