supposed to be V.maculicauda

Post by HaakonH » Mon Apr 02, 2012 4:11 pm

A while ago I got hold of a group of Vieja maculicauda for a friend of mine. These came from the Czech Republic. However, as they've grown we have become unsure about their ID. Could they be hybrids, or a different species?

There seems to be a mixture of either V. Synspila / melanura or P. bifasciatus, perhaps a mixture of the two? Certainly not V. maculicauda ! :)
