I was keeping my single E.andersoni larvae together with my C.orientalis larvae because it was easy to tell them apart, the E.andersoni larvae being gold in color and the C.orientalis black. Today when I checked in on the larvae, I found this morph, which I first assumed to be C.orientalis...until I couldn't find my E.andersoni larvae! Click the image to open in full size. Upon closer examination, however, this appears to be the E.andersoni, it's having become black all of a sudden. The orange feet give it away, as does the dark belly (the C.orientalis bellies are whitish).

Definitely a Tylototriton or Echinotriton with a head like that anyway. Thanks for sharing!
