Etymology This species is dedicated to Per Solemdal (1941–2016) who was the first researcher to study the Baltic Sea flounder's eggs and sperm in connection to salinity and discovered that “the specific gravity of the eggs is a fixed population characteristic which is almost unchangeable” (Solemdal, 1973) laying the foundations on which many subsequent studies on local adaptation and speciation of Baltic Sea marine fishes were built [details]

Etymology This species is dedicated to Per Solemdal (1941–2016) who was the first researcher to study the Baltic Sea flounder's eggs and sperm in connection to salinity and discovered that “the specific gravity of the eggs is a fixed population characteristic which is almost unchangeable” (Solemdal, 1973) laying the foundations on which many subsequent studies on local adaptation and speciation of Baltic Sea marine fishes were built [details]

Habitat lives in brackish water of varying salinities in the coastal zone at 0.5–50 m depth on soft and hard bottoms. [details]

Morphology The specimens belonging to P. solemdali sp. nov. (N = 50) have 46–59 dorsal fin rays (holotype 59), 35–41 anal fin rays (holotype 40), 8–12 pectoral fin rays (holotype 11) on the eye-side and 6 to 11 on the blind side (holotype 10), 5–6 pelvic fin rays (holotype 6) and 16–19 caudal fin rays (holotype 17). Concerning the morphometric data, the body depth measures 43.8–53.5% of the standard length SL (holotype 47.1% SL), the head length 25.7–31.9% SL (holotype 27.6% SL), the dorsal fin base length 76.8–85.6% SL (holotype 80.9% SL), the anal fin base length 50.9–59.4% SL (holotype 55.9% SL), the eye-side pectoral fin length 12.1–15.9% SL (holotype 14.0% SL), the blind side pectoral fin length 10.0–15.5% SL (holotype 12.0% SL), the pelvic fin length 7.7%−11.8% (holotype 9.3% SL), the caudal peduncle length 8.9–13.1% SL (holotype 11.1% SL), the caudal peduncle depth 8.1–11.0% SL (holotype 8.9% SL), the pre-dorsal fin length 5.9–11.4% SL (holotype 7.0% SL), the pre-anal fin length 30.7–45.1% SL (holotype 33.6% SL), the pre-pectoral fin length 24.2–32.7% SL (holotype 28.1% SL), the pre-pelvic fin length 20.0 to 30.0 % SL (holotype 21.0% SL), the snout length 15.8–27.6% of the head length HL (holotype 17.5% HL), the eye diameter 13.8–17.7% HL (holotype 16.1% HL), the interorbital width 0.0–7.4% HL (holotype 6.6% HL) and the post-orbital length 59.2–70.1% HL (holotype 67.6% HL) [details]
