It is found a depths between 7 and 800 m (23 and 2,625 ft) in the northeast Atlantic and Mediterranean.[1] It can be separated from its close relative, the megrim or whiff (L. whiffiagonis), by the dark spots towards the rear of the fins. It reaches a length of 40 cm (16 in).[1]

In Spanish it is known as gallo de cuatro manchas, (or more often, simply gallo) sometimes (depending on the region or city) ojito, or rapante. In Catalan it is palaia bruixa de quatre taques, serrandell or llisèria. In France it is known as cardine à quatre taches.
