Abstract:

Three new species of flatfish, Trichopsetta caribbaea, T. melasma, and T. orbisulcus, are described. The only previously known species, T. ventralis, is redescribed. A terse description, relationship, range, illustration, and radiograph are provided for each species. Species of this genus are limited to the western North Atlantic from southern United States through the Caribbean to Surinam in depths of between 20 and 150 fathoms. A key is included for identifying species of this genus.
