Hi Folks,
some identification questions about Paramesotriton chinensis
it looks like the usual batch of Paramesotriton chinensis may consists of sub-species
within, normally i do see Paramesotriton chinensis has at least 2 color types
the Black/Dark Brown types and the Greenish types, both still have very rough skin
it seems to me the southern species are something else, what is your thoughts?

the Greenish types looks like is now call Paramesotriton qixilingensis?
China: Jiangxi
