Identify genus and species

hola amigos, primero quería disculparme por mi traductor comprensiblilidad texto ya que el uso .. y en segundo lugar yo quería dejar algunas fotos de mis tritones de los podais ver y decir como se les llama. He tratado sin éxito de identificar en otro foro y que estaba dirigida a esta página web. Me dijeron que este lugar recibiría posiblemente mejor información. Espero que me entiendan y vean e identifiquen podais mis tritones porque soy muy curioso saber su identificación. gracias

The pictures work fine! As for the newts, they look like Hypselotriton orientalis. They have the unusual mottled colouration but I'm pretty certain that's what they are. At first glance they looked a bit like H. cyanurus but they always seem to have an orange spot behind their eye whereas yours don't. Maybe somebody more experienced with Hypselotriton will confirm what I think.

That´s essentially what i told him. There are some somewhat confusing traits like dorsal lines, spots and a belly that looks slightly unusual, but H.orientalis seems like the most likely ID. In some of the other pictures i´ve seen they look more orientalis than they do in this, particularly the males.

On several occasions I have noticed that H. orientalis are capable of adjusting their body color to their surroundings to some degree. Some individuals more so than others. The white sand that is used as substrate by Mortenson may be the cause for the unusual light coloring of his H. orientalis. Keeping them in darker colored surroundings reverses the proces within an hour or so. My guess is that they would look like normal H. orientalis after that.

I would say Cynops cyanurus, not C. orientalis

This is a variant I've seen in small numbers among W/C H.orientalis, and managed to scoop a few from among hundreds of imports. They often resemble H.fudingensis, so I remain unsure of a final ID, but treat them as an interesting variant of orientalis for the moment.

Over on CC there is a photo on the H. orientalis care sheet with all the known colour variants, some of those animals are identical to these.
