  Etymology of generic noun :   
Greek, ippos = horse + Greek, glossa = tongue (Ref. 45335).
  Etymology of specific epithet :   
From the Greek hippos (horse), glossa (tounge), steno (narrow), lepis, (scale). In 1904, a Russian scientist by the name of P.J. Schmidt first proposed the scientific name based on anatomical differences such as scale shape, pectoral fin length, and body shape which he thought distinguished it from the Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus). (Ref. 94075).
