An adult (231mm standard length, LS; 371mm total length, LT), dextral (right-sided) common megrim Lepidorhombus whiffiagonis is reported from the northern North Sea. This is the first recorded occurrence of reversal in this species. Other than its reversed asymmetry, the specimen had morphological and meristic characteristics similar to those of non-reversed individuals of the same species.
