Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorDescription West Africa and Indo-West Pacific. Eyes on right or left side of head; migrating eye on dorsal edge of head. Large mouth; vomer, palatine and tongue with minute teeth. Distinct preopercular margin, not hidden beneath skin. Dorsal fin origin well behind eyes, the anterior rays spinous. Almost symmetrical pelvic fins with a weak spine and five soft rays. Cycloid scale; lateral line developed on both sides of body. Vertebra 10+14. Psettodids are considered the most primitive of the flatfishes, as expressed, e.g., by few vertebrae and their habit of often swimming in an upright position. Psettodes erumei reaches up to 64 cm. [details]
