The Small Tooth Flounder (Pseudorhombus jenynsii) is a flat fish species that is a member of the ‘Large Tooth Flounders’ family Paralichthyidae. It is also commonly referred to as Jenyn’s Flounder. This species looks very similar to the ‘Large-tooth Flounder’ Pseudorhombus arsius and the two are easily confused in identification as the characteristics are very hard to separate. This species is known to occur around the southern coastline of Australia from Perth to southern Queensland however it is not known to occur in Tasmania. It can be found on estuaries, coastal embayments and offshore on sandy/muddy bottoms down to depths of at least 50 metres. It is known to feed on benthic animals and is considered to be an excellent eating fish. The Small Tooth Flounder (Pseudorhombus jenynsii) grows to a maximum length of approximately 34cm.
