These guys are over 15 years old and were never positively ID'ed. To the best of my ability, I've given it the ol' college try and believe they are Nuu Ami henkeli. For you folks with more experience, could some of you either confirm or make another suggestion?
P.S. The neonate is an offspring from last year.

From what I see, the male seems to big to be a Nuu Ami. Maybe someone else could helpout.

If you don't know the history of your animals it is not possible to id them only by looking. Most henkeli morphs really look almost the same. For instance no one can tell the difference between an isle E an bayonaise or a pine isle because they all look very much the same. Even in animals from one bloodline differences in appearance can be big(i've had dark an light animals from my pine isle's in one clutch). So you have very good looking animals but you can only sell them as henkeli from an uncertain location.
The only thing you can do is trace back to the animals who produced your animals and even further if possible.

Gonna have to talk to Mother Nature about who produced them because these guys were wild caught back in '97 as adults.

Than it should be easy, just ask the person you bought them from on wich island they were collected or ask the question on following forum www.forums.repashy.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18
but don't forget to mention they were wild caught. De vosjoli is on that forum he should know.
