Ali M., Saad A., Reynaud C., Capapé C. 2015. First record of wedge sole, Dicologlossa cuneata (Actinopterygii: Pleuronectiformes: Soleidae), from the Levant Basin (eastern Mediterranean). Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 45 (4): 417–421.
This paper reports the first record of a specimen of wedge sole, Dicologlossa cuneata (Moreau, 1881), from the Syrian coast, and also from the Levant Basin, constituting its easternmost extension range in the Mediterranean Sea. The specimen was examined, illustrated, measured, and weighed and the collected data are provided herein. This single capture of D. cuneata, however, cannot support a statement that a sustainable population of this fish has established itself in this area.
