Platycephalus indicus

(Linnaeus, 1758)

Ryanskiy Andrey ID please! Local fishermen's catch 3 days ago in Thailand, 40 cm

Cameron Easton Looks like a flathead Thysanophrys species, but I can't tell which one ..... Over to the experts...!

Robert Arthur Dusky

Mark Springs Flat head

Stuart Pearce Really need to see the pattern on fins to get these to species, the fact it was caught in Thailand, horizontal barred caudal fin, and mottled pectoral fins would lead me to Platycephalus indicus or very closely related species, snout looks slightly too pointed though for P. indicus.
