A New Bothid Flatfish Parabothus Taiwanensis Collected from Taiwan (Pleuronectiformes: Bothidae)
A new bothid flatfish, Parabothus taiwanensis, collected from the southwestern and northeastern coasts of Taiwan is described from five specimens. It is characterized by having a low number of scales in the lateral line (61–62), biserial teeth on the upper jaw, and a knob on the snout tip and the mandibular symphysis in males. Although the generic placement of taiwanensis is uncertain, this species is tentatively considered as a species of Parabothus because of moderate interorbital width in male and moderate body depth.
