. The Senegalese sole, Solea senegalensis Kaup, 1858, was recorded for the first time from the southeastern Mediterranean near Tel-Aviv, Israel on 17 May 2013. This eastern Atlantic species is rare in the western Mediterranean, but now also documented from the southeastern Mediterranean.

Red Sea fishes in the Mediterranean Sea: a preliminary investigation of a biological invasion using DNA barcoding

A preliminary DNA barcode library for alien Mediterranean fishes of probable Red Sea origin in the Mediterranean Sea is presented, showing that most species could be identified, yet the data also uncovered some taxa with unresolved taxonomy and possible cases of unrecognized or cryptic species invasions.

Genomic signatures of rapid adaptive evolution in the bluespotted cornetfish, a Mediterranean Lessepsian invader

Using genome scans, with restriction site‐associated DNA (RAD) sequencing, neutral and selected genomic regions for Mediterranean vs. Red Sea cornetfish individuals were evaluated and it was found that few fixed neutral changes were detectable among populations.

Habitat utilization by an invasive herbivorous fish (Siganus rivulatus) in its native and invaded range

It is found that the movement of S. rivulatus individuals at a Mediterranean site differed substantially from those at a Red Sea site, with individuals in the Mediterranean having larger overall home ranges and lower site fidelity.

First confirmed record of the blue tang, Acanthurus coeruleus (Actinopterygii:Perciformes:Acanthuridae) in the Mediterranean

It is postulate that this species may be considered as having established a population in this region since hitherto it was known from this region only by a single underwater photograph from Cyprus.



A taxonomic reappraisal of the Atlanto‐Mediterranean soles Solea solea, S. senegalensis and S. lascaris

Examination of morphometric characters of Solea aegyptiaca shows that it cannot be separated from Solea solea, and the available data show that Solea impar and S. nasuta are junior synonyms of S. lascaris.

Systematics of the Atlantic-Mediterranean soles Pegusa impar, P. lascaris, Solea aegyptiaca, S. senegalensis, and S. solea (Pleuronectiformes: Soleidae)

Solea aegyptiaca, considered a synonym of Solea solea, and Solea (Pegusa) impar are shown to be valid species according to the morphological, phylogenetic, genotypic, and biological species definitions.

Révision taxinomique du genre Solea et réhabilitation du genre Barnardichthys (Soleidae ; Pleuronectiformes)

Nous rehabilitons egalement le genre Barnardichthys Chabanaud, 1927b, pour l'espece Solea fulvomarginata Gilchrist, 1904, avec des commentaires sur the position phylogenetique du genre.
