Rep: Neotenic is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Tylototriton ID & phylogenetic changes

Attached are the new Tylototritons I've received. Last I recalled they were only two species of tylototriton which looked like this, but I've been out of the "game" for ages and am aware that recent phylogenetic changes make this ID thing significantly harder.

Also, post ID, would there be any specific tips for caring for this particular species? For example, land to water ratios seem very unclear to me at this point as do temperature ranges.
