Caption: Common topknot (Pleuronectes punctatus). This is the underside of the fish. The common topknot inhabits rocks and wrecks. Unlike other flatfish it has very little ability to change the colours of its back to provide camouflage. It can however cling on to most rocky surfaces and may even be found clinging to the underside of a rock. It is found in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. Photographed in Devon, UK.
