Mullet Species ID

Hi all. While fly fishing for mullet on Spain's Costa Blanca I caught (and released naturally) the mullet photographed. Local anglers identified the fish as a Mugil cephalus (flat head mullet) but examples of M. cephalus I have seen previously did not have the pronounced blue spot at the base of the pectoral fin. I wonder if this fish is a form of M. cephalus or a seperate species? Any advice greatly received.
