sundial's don't really have any teeth, they have a mouth like a crappie in FW. and as DJ noted are very very thin and dont get much larger than a couple pounds where as fluke get much larger.

The first rays on the dorsal fin are what I notice. I believe they start more forward than on the other fish, but the first few rays are branched, like a twig, and unmistakenly windowpane. Called windowpane, but one I caught last week was almost an inch and a half thick. I saw another smaller one (about 8" long) appear off the bottom, in about a foot or less of water, to attack my swimmer that I was about to lift from the wash. I think they only grow to about 18 inches.
