Species: Goniurosaurus Hainanensis
Name of Gene: LINQS
First produced by whom: Cameron M of Cave Kid Geckos
Year First Produced:2019/2020
Genetics Type (Incdom/Codom/Recessive/Polygenic/etc): incdom
In complex with other genes?: N/A
Other names/aliases for it?: N/A
Description: The LINQS gene causes aberrations to the geckos pattern. Mainly connecting the bands and increasing amount of pattern.
Appearance; What it does/looks like?
- Head: head band may be bolder and or have additional banding that parts off and runs down behind the ear. Creating a “ glasses “ look.
- Body: bands aberrations, connecting bands, darker pattern.
- Belly: May have speckled belly.
- Tail: stripes, additional bands, broken or incomplete bands.
Proven: To what degree it is proven out to not just be polygenic? F1
Unique: Why do you believe this is a new morph and not an existing one? Currently there are no morphs listed for G. Hainanensis
Problems: Any problems? No.
History: The history behind its discovery? In my search for g. Hainanensis and I came across a pair of clutch mates. One with what looked at first glance a normal pattern, and one with an aberrant pattern. The “ normal “ appearing one being female, and the aberrant pattern a male. Once the pair was immature enough to breed, they were paired. The aberrant male was also paired to all available unrelated females as well.
Disagreement or Controversy: none
