Very neat, almost looks like a smiley face! You should try and breed specifically for this color form, although I'm sure it would be a long time before you saw any results.

That a nice pattern. Only I suppose it will take some time before the market is flooded with this form, as Redmont mentioned :) But nonetheless worth trying to culture. 
Btw has anyone very tried to make / did by accudent create a Therea olegrandjeani - Therea petiveriana hybrid?

I wonder a lot about hybrids in this genus but I only have the one species to play with I will defiantly try to isolate this morph if I can. This one is a male so I will isolate the females that have not matured yet. These actually mature pretty fast for me most places say 8 months to a year but I think living in texas helps them mature faster I think mine went from hatching to adult in 4 months.

This is a fairly common mutation, I had a Question mark come out similar looking, Orin McMonigle has been breeding for this trait for years. :)

I had a colony with more than 60% showing this trait after a number of years. I figured I'd have shortly isolated it but poor luck or management resulted in probable complete collapse.

I'm sorry to hear that. I have had a few collapses myself and its not a good feeling.
