I don't have much experience with Japanese newts, but to me they look like C. pyrrhogaster. -Seth

They do look like classic C. pyrrhogaster Sasayame race, but you can never know for sure unless you know what locality they came from.

Ok, than i won't put them together with the sasayame i have, to prevent 'hybrid' of different subspecies. I have them both in a 60cm tank now, they are Lucky

I agree they look like typical sasayamae. Look out for the males courting and putting a hind leg over the females head during the process.

I think Jen's advice is best. Not having locality data it is always a good idea to not assume.

They do look like my C. p sasayama, although there were some identical looking newts for sale last year that were apparently collected on Kyushu so I agree with everyone else, you can never be 100% sure.

Sasayama is in Kyushu, but the color traits of C.sasayamae can occur in some populations of other species. Locality is critical for Cynops, given that species names and boundaries are not firmly established yet.
