    Default A couple questions about Sphaerodactylus nigropunctatus


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I just purchased a male S. nigropunctatus and did a little research on them. I noticed it looks very similar to the one floating around the hobby as intermedius however when I look up the different subspecies, intermedius is not mentioned. So my questions are what exactly is intermedius and which subspecies does it originate from?

    Um this will be sort of confusing....

    Sphaerodactylus 'nigropunctatus' intermedius was formerly known as S. nigro granti. What was once known as nigro granti has been placed as intermedius. What was formerly known as nigro torrei is now called nigro granti.

    Hello Jim,
    Sphaerodactylus nigropunctatus "intermedius" is not a valid subspecies. They aren´t described yet and because of the coloration in males is similar to S. intermedius we called them S. nigropunctatus "intermedius".

    Dennis,
    Thank you. I am really enjoying this little guy. Hopefully I can find a female for him which is why I am so interested in what subspecies he is.
