disparidentata punctata Zachs. It seems likely that the best description
in English is in Light's thesis - if that specimen [coll 1948, Sea of
Okhotsk, ZIL 24/28272] was indeed the same as Asychis punctata Zachs,
1933. There's also some sort of  description by Uschakov (1955) which
Light mentions in his synonymy, and I think it might be published in
