Abstract

Six species of pleuronectids, Ammotretis liturata (Richardson), A. macrolepis McCulloch, A. rostratus Gunther, Azygopus pinnifasciatus Norman, Rhombosolea tapirina Gunther and Taratretis derwentensis gen. et. sp. nov., are found in Tasmanian waters and a key for their identification is given. The new genus is defined and the species described. In addition, Ammotretis tudori McCulloch is placed in synonymy with A. liturata and notes on R. tapirina are provided. A second known specimen of A. macrolepis described and the features which distinguish it from A. liturata are noted.
