Default Colour question

I'm intrigued to know what colour my little Neville would be described as! I've never seen another axolotl quite like him! He has a very white underside, but a speckly head and really dark patches on his pink gills. And he's got a kind of blue pearly shine to him, especially on his head! Here's the best pic I can get to show this https://instagram.com/p/BVDRpS-DjQY/
Thanks :)

I think it's probably leucistic, and the blue pearly sheen might be his blood through his skin.

I would say she's a dirty (or freckled, people use different terms) leucistic!
Super adorable too :)
