This clutch has me guessing. The pairing was Black Pastel Lesser Cypress to Emperor Pin. Just wondering what you guys think.
Here’s my guess
- All 6 genes? Black Pewter Super Lesser Cypress Pinstripe
- Black Pewter Lesser Cypress
- Black Pewter Cypress
- Black Pewter Lesser pinstripe
- Black Pastel
- Super Lesser
@t_h_wyman is your guy for Black Pastel IDs so I’d take his word over mine but here goes…
I think your spot on minus the second copy of lesser. It looks like a really dark Black Pewter Kingpin which could be the Cypress.
Again, I believe your right. It looks exactly like a Black Pewter Lesser Cypress listed by Bob Vu and I’d take his word on identification.
By the looks of it I think I’m going to be agreeing with most of them. Cypress is easily noticeable in this one. To be honest I think I prefer this over the +lesser above.
If your not right here is say as a second guess a Black Pastel Pinstripe.
Super Lesser + ???
Some absolutely beautiful animals
1 is BlkPewter Lesser Pin poss Cypress
2 is BlkPewter Cypress Lesser
3 is BlkPastel Lesser (not sure about Cypress in this one, I am not seeing the “ocelli” in the dorsal that Cypress usually imparts)
4 is Lemonblast (might have Cypress, that dorsal has me questioning)
5 is BlkPastel
6 is a SuperLesser, likely also has Pin and maybe Cypress
The only reason I think the first one might have both copies of lesser is that it has blue eyes. However i don’t have a lot of experience producing BEL’s with super lesser.
You cannot “add” colour into a the whiter BluELs so animal 1 is not a SuperLesser.
If you do a direct comparison of the eyes of animal 1 to animal 6 you will see there is a difference in the colouration. Animal 1 will end up looking more silver/slate than light blue. Animal 1 will also have a more pronounced discontinuity of shade between the top and bottom
I see. So the eyes aren’t actually blue.
