The Pleuronectidae were divided by de Groot (1971) into three ecological and morphological groups: (1) the feeders on fishes having large gill rakers, (2) the feeders on crustaceans and to a lesser extent molluscs and polychaetes having smaller-toothed gill rakers and (3) the feeders on polychaetes, molluscs and crustaceans with even smaller-toothed rakers.
