Default O. pumilio "Ryan"

A fellow board member was nice enough to hook me up. Enjoy!

Cant believe how much these resemble Nicky but I believe that they are from the Valiente pennisula.

Yup.
You hit the nail on the head. This is exactly what concerns me about these imports. We have to believe that they are not from tiny little populations.
We will never know though, will we?

I will double check but I believe the big issue with escondido nicky right now is development. Its crazy how much there is on the islands, even just from the last two years. You wouldnt even recognize playa bluff. That whole area we hiked is gone.

Likely closely related, which would not be surprizing, though I certainly see some general differences from the pics you linked to and the Ryan I have seen that came in on the shipment. Most look more similar to Escudo with less spotting then your specimens.

That's just sad. Hopefully they adapt well to the disturbed habitat like they have in others areas.

How will you check this?
Who knows exactly where "secret island" Nicky is located?

Everyone, Chris. They all know the father of Nicky. Playa bluff has a group of them at the lodge as well.

Its not nearly as secret as Chris had hoped. And from what I recall more development was occuring there. Shame.

Im not sure how much habitat there really is. A lot of it is marsh / mangrove.
