and ya can’t make IDs on everything just by looking.

mostly tridentina has its pits nicely lined up, but not always.

check out the L rear example, with its contorted pits and reddening.


looks an awful lot like this one, eh?


True, kind of like 95274 huh?

that is morphologically distinct by virtue of its coloration and the arrangement of its pits and ridges
