Orange Milkbacks?

Noticed a few of these in a mixed culture of Porcellio laevis Milkback x Orange. Other than the fact nobody else has been able to do the cross, I do not believe these are a cross due to the expression of melanin in the cuticle. I found 11 individuals in a culture of several hundred. Most of the others were normal Milkbacks. I purposefully did not feed any food with significant carotenoids to avoid any false positives. Not sure if it will take, but I have isolated them.

Did the seller say about that the seller have both of those isopods (Porcellio laevis Milkback and Orange)?
