The brushtooth lizardfish (Saurida undosquamis) is a type of lizardfish, a demersal species that lives mainly in the shallow waters of the Red Sea region.[1] It has also invaded the Mediterranean,[2] being an example of a Lessepsian migrant, i.e., a species that has used the Suez Canal as dispersal route.
