Default Re: Paramesotriton chinensis/hongkonensis hybrids

Odds are they're fertile. The two species are in the same species group and relatively closely related. There are a great many examples of more distantly related species interbreeding with success. In most cases, the barriers to reproduction are behavioral or geographic rather than physiological or genetic.
