Hi Patrick, i don't keep Neurergus.....but as far as i know the "gold dust" morph is something that happens very rarely with Strauchii....i don't believe these can be bred to create a line of gold dust animals....but i could be wrong.

As far as I know, the golddust morph is extinct. There was someone who said that he still had some, but his reputation isn't fantastic, so I'm sceptical about this.

I suppose the golddust animals can be bred the same as the flavistic T. carnifex, their gen for the golddust morphology will probably be recessive.

William, there are gold-dust morphs of various species. I think they're specifically talking about Neurergus gold-dust morphs.

These so called "Golddust" variant is very interesting.. they look very different then the normal Neurergus.S.S.
Does anyone know if they are rare?

Golddust was a colour morph in the first breedings in Germany. It was not as common as flavistic morphs, and there could still be some around, but I haven't seen them in years. And all people I have asked don't have them.

Crocatus is nearly extinct in captivity. We can just hope that the few remaining animals will be bred one day. They are in hands of experienced people so if they can't breed...we will have to wait until holiday trips to Iraq are available again....
