Nice photos, it seems you have several different tylototriton. Underneath your larvae shot seems to be T.vietnamensis, underneath that a female E.andersoni in water, and the darker "emaciated" form probably is vietnamensis as well in my experience....which has already been described.
May I ask if you collected these yourself or prurchased them at a shop?

It isn't T.vietnamensis for the dark/ black croc newt and the one in the water.
Because they are both from China.

I can say they are similar, but they aren't

Yes ,I understand the one in water is not vietnamensis, it looks like a Echinotriton andersoni female :)
It is possible vietnamensis are also found in southern china given that they occur in northern vietnam. There has already been talk of a darker northern subspecies of vietnamensis.
Do you know where they came from in China?? Did you collect these yourself??

Very interesting pictures!

Turbo
could you please write the species name correctly? Not everyone in the forum knows that for T.S. you meant Tylototriton shanjing. For example I didn't understand what you meant for T.A. Was it Tylototriton asperrimus? If you coluld write the whole word at least for the species it would help many people that are not tylototriton experts to understand what you're talking about.
Cheers
Francesco

Turbo, how did you acquire these? Did you collect them yourself or did you purchase them through a buyer? i am very intrigued by the first foto, it doesnt look like a shanjing nor does it look like a verrocous.

I really enjoyed looking at these photos as well Turbo, especially the odd color variations. I also have to ask - did you find these yourself or did you purchase them?
