The presence of pisciform remains at the site of La Cantalera is merely token, since only one very small-sized vertebra has been recovered that can be attributed to Osteichthyes on the basis of its morphology.
The lesions in these diseases, however, can be distinguished from traditional CHRPEs in their characteristic pisciform shape, bilaterality, and multiplicity of lesions.
They sometimes have an atypical shape such as pisciform (fish tail) or fusiform (spindle), but the diagnostic criteria with the highest specificity/ sensitivity for POFLs includes the detection of at least four small pigmented lesions, or two lesions of which one is large (>25% of disc area) (2).
