It sounds like getting this to a species may be difficult:

"Positive identification of Pacific sanddab, gulf sanddab, speckled sanddab, and longfin sanddab require gill raker and lateral line scale counts. Pacific sanddab have 12 to 16 gill rakers on the lower limb of the first gill arch and 61 to 70 scales along the lateral line. "

At the time I'm sure I just assumed all small flounders were the same sanddab you buy in the stores. Thanks for the correction.
