The taxonomic relations of two flatfish genera, Pseudopleuronectes and Liopsetta were examined for the species Ps. yokohamae, L. obscura and L. pinnifasciata with the use of morphometry and lateral line system structure analysis. Ps. yokohamae and L. obscura were found to be very similar in the majority of plastic and meristic characters and in the arrangement of the lateral line sensory canals on the head. Our findings confirmed the recent suggestions of a close relationship between Ps. yokohamae and L. obscura and provided a solid argument for the transfer of L. obscura from the genus Liopsetta to the genus Pseudopleuronectes.
