Why isn't this a Plaice (Pleuronectes platessa)

The colour pattern is unusual for a flounder. Was the flounder ID confirmed by the short spines along the lateral line and fin edges?

You're right.

No such identification was made. The photograph of this observation was taken almost a year a go so my ID was based on my own depleted memory. Feel free to correct this as you see fit (if that's possible, I'm still somewhat unfamiliar with the site!).

Thanks for your input!
