I found this guy in my backyard. I thought it was a Gertchi morph. Any one for sure.

My money's on Gertschi.

The biggest difference between C. sculpticauda* "Gertschi" and C. vittatus has something to do with the coloration surrounding the eyes. So, look closely at the patterning of the carapace and you should be able to tell.

*Portmanteau of exilicauda and sculpturatus because taxonomy revisions make me go Neutral

{this is my reply from Venomlist}

I'm 99.999% certain it's the C. exilsculp gertchi

thats lookin pretty gertchi. im very surprised you found it in phoenix. if you want to find more, i can take you to some great spots and then we can do a good side by side analysis. it is possible that it is an abbarent pattern of the nominate form. i have seen individuals within a nominate population with slight markings like that, but never that bold. nice looking animal.

I only have only run into 2 out of the 15 I have caught in my back yard. Maybe I can start breeding them and you guys will have the hook up.

we had sculp defined as exili since Herbert Stahnke came up with the anti-venom and then all of a sudden we decided to jump back and forth with the name until 2004
