All extant species of flatfish (order Pleuronectiformes) are thought to descend from a common ancestor, and therefore to represent a monophyletic group. This hypothesis is based largely on the dramatic bilateral asymmetry and associated ocular migration characteristics of all flatfish. Yet, molecular-based phylogenetic studies have been inconclusive on this premise. Support for flatfish monophyly has varied with differences in taxonomic and gene region sampling schemes. Notably, the genus… Expand
Flatfish monophyly refereed by the relationship of Psettodes in Carangimorphariae
TLDR
An evolutionary explanation for the difficulty in determining the phylogenetic position of Psettodes is proposed, which suggests that over a short period in the early Paleocene, a series of important evolutionary events occurred in carangimorphs. Expand
Origins and relationships of the Pleuronectoidei: Molecular and morphological analysis of living and fossil taxa
TLDR
A total evidence phylogeny that places fossil flatfishes among extant lineages is constructed and finds polyphyly or paraphyly of two flatfish families, the Paralichthyidae and the Rhombosoleidae, and supports the creation of two additional families to resolve their non‐monophyletic status. Expand
Molecular evidence for the monophyly of flatfishes (Carangimorpharia: Pleuronectiformes).
TLDR
A reanalysis of evidence suggests the contrary and combination of the new data with existing datasets unequivocally supports the monophyly of this group based on analyses of concatenated data as well as species tree approaches. Expand
Mitochondrial genomic investigation of flatfish monophyly.
TLDR
The first study to use whole mitochondrial genome sequences to examine phylogenetic affinities of the flatfishes (Pleuronectiformes) is presented, yielding strong support for clade L and weak support for the monophyly of Pleuronctiformes. Expand
Revised classification of the righteye flounders (Teleostei: Pleuronectidae) based on multilocus phylogeny with complete taxon sampling.
TLDR
A comprehensive taxonomic reassessment of the family Pleuronectidae is proposed based on the molecular phylogeny reconstructed from four nuclear and three mitochondrial loci and represented by complete taxon sampling of all but one valid species currently assigned to this family. Expand
Phylogenetic placement of enigmatic percomorph families (Teleostei: Percomorphaceae).
TLDR
The authors' analyses suggest a close affinity between the orders Spariformes and Lobotiformes (including the tripletails or Lobotidae, the barbeled grunters, and tigerperches or Datnioididae), albeit support for this group is low. Expand
Phylogenomic analysis of carangimorph fishes reveals flatfish asymmetry arose in a blink of the evolutionary eye
TLDR
A phylogeny based on UCE loci that unequivocally supports flatfish monophyly and a single origin of asymmetry points to phenotypic divergence early within carangimorph history that broadly matches with the predictions of adaptive models of lineage diversification. Expand
Shared ecological traits influence shape of the skeleton in flatfishes (Pleuronectiformes)
TLDR
The majority of variation evolved recently, within the past 15–10-million-years in the middle Miocene, and is highly variable within the flatfishes. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Pseudorhombus dupliocellatus (Pleuronectiformes: Paralichthyidae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic tree of 13 species all in Pleuronectiformes demonstrated that P. dupliocellatus, as well as the other Paralichthyidae fishes containing ParalICHthys olivaceus and Pseudorhombus cinnamoneus, clustered in a clade and had a closer relationship with PleuronECTidae species than Bothidae ones. Expand
Exon-capture data and locus screening provide new insights into the phylogeny of flatfishes (Pleuronectoidei).
TLDR
Eighteen phylogenies based on a genome-wide dataset and wide taxon sampling of the largest flatfish suborder are presented, and show strong support for the monophyly of all families included except Pleuronectidae. Expand

Pleuronectiform relationships : a cladistic reassessment
TLDR
It is concluded that phylogenetic knowledge within flatfishes remains very incomplete and the monophyletic status of speciose taxa such as the Pleuronectinae and Paralichthyidae will have to be reassessed before any fruitful statement of relationships can be formulated. Expand
An overview of the systematics and biogeography of the flatfishes
TLDR
The most recent classifications based on phylogenetic studies have split several of the traditionally recognized families, and a great deal of work at the alpha-taxonomic level with flatfishes is still needed. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the order Pleuronectiformes (Teleostei) based on sequences of 12S and 16S mitochondrial genes
TLDR
The results corroborate the monophyletic status of all families, excluding Paralichthyidae, and suggest that the freshwater habitats in South America were colonized independently by different achirid lineages. Expand
Evolutionary affinity of billfishes (Xiphiidae and Istiophoridae) and flatfishes (Plueronectiformes): Independent and trans-subordinal origins of endothermy in teleost fishes.
TLDR
It is shown that billfishes are not only distantly related to tunas, but rather share strong evolutionary affinities with flatfishes (Pleuronectiformes) and jacks (Carangidae), and synapomorphies consistent with the hypothesis of a common billfish/flatfish/jack ancestor are identified. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships of Pleuronectiformes Based on Molecular Evidence
TLDR
The results support the conclusion that eye position is not a useful source of information for the classification of flatfishes and provides a new framework for future studies. Expand
The evolution of pharyngognathy: a phylogenetic and functional appraisal of the pharyngeal jaw key innovation in labroid fishes and beyond.
TLDR
This study provides a surprising, but well-supported, hypothesis for a convict-blenny sister group to the charismatic cichlids and new insights into the evolution of pharyngognathy. Expand
The evolutionary origin of flatfish asymmetry
TLDR
It is shown that Amphistium and the new genus Heteronectes, both extinct spiny-finned fishes from the Eocene epoch of Europe, are the most primitive pleuronectiforms known and the orbital region of the skull in both taxa is strongly asymmetrical, as in living flatfishes, but these genera retain many primitive characters unknown in extant forms.

Monophyly and interrelationships of Snook and Barramundi (Centropomidae sensu Greenwood) and five new markers for fish phylogenetics.
TLDR
The monophyly of Centropomidae sensu Greenwood was supported by both maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses of a concatenated data set (12,888 bp aligned), and no support was found for previous morphological hypotheses suggesting that ambassids are closely allied to the Centopomidae. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Clupeiformes (Actinopterygii) inferred from nuclear and mitochondrial DNA sequences.
TLDR
It is suggested that a major revision in the classification of clupeiform fishes may be necessary, but should await a more complete taxonomic sampling and additional data. Expand
Further support for the clades obtained by multiple molecular phylogenies in the acanthomorph bush.
TLDR
This work has taken the approach to analyse also each dataset separately prior to their combination, and detect repeated groups: signal common to markers is more probably a reflection of shared ancestry than marker-specific signal. Expand
