P. scaber variability

Recommended Posts

I’m digging the variability in this species. Now I have young running all over so I can see how the genetics work, sooner or later.

Very nice calico P.scaber in the first pic! :D

BTW you actually seem to have a Trachelipus rathkii there in the second pic.

Oh nice! I thought the striped ones looked a little different.

Yea, people always recommend differentiating these two species by counting the pairs of pleopodal lungs, but I tell you, I've never seen P.scaber with the type of mottling, texture, or presence of the two vertical stripes as seen on T.rathkii.

Separating them out will be a challenge. Those things are fast.
