The Mediterranean turbot Psetta maxima consists of two main genetically distinct lineages (western Mediterranean and ‘eastern secluded Mediterranean’ basins) as investigated by mitochondrial DNA analysis. Within the latter lineage, most haplotypes from the Sea of Azov were endemic and more than half of them derived from a single ancestral haplotype shared among all the eastern Mediterranean areas. There was no relation between morphotype variation in bony tubercles and mitochondrial genealogy.
