  Comment: Inopsetta ischyra (Jordan and Gilbert, 1880) is a apparently a hybrid of Platichthys stellatus (Pallas, 1788) and Parophrys vetulus Girard, 1854. According to Mecklenburg, Mecklenburg and Thorsteinson, 2002, "Current rules of nomenclature..., however, do not allow binomens for hybrids. If the form ever is shown to be a distinct species, the binomen Inopsetta ischyra (Jordan and Gilbert, 1880) might apply"
