I'm new to diving in California, so I'm not good at identifying fish and creatures over here :). I found this flatfish in the sand while diving at Breakwater Cove (San Carlos Beach, Monterey) last weekend. It was small, about 5-6 inches. That is the only picture I have of it.
Does anyone know what species this is? The only Californian flatfish I've learned about are the California halibut and the speckled sanddab ... but this doesn't look like it could be any of the two?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
