Thing is, rosies vary so much by locality, not just ssp. And there are some areas where they intergrade and possess qualities of two ssp. However, each of the currently recognized ssp has a certain look about them.

Check out www.[url ban] to see examples of many localities.

There exist albinos and hets that are of mixed locality, for example I have seen albino coastal rosies (Limburg strain, from near Temecula, CA) mixed with San Gabriel Mtn rosies to make very pretty het-for-albino rosies. I have seen desertxcoastal locality albinos (Whitewater, CA strain) mixed with "unicolor" coastal rosies to produce an albino with (hopefully) more orange and less white. Bay of LA, Baja CA mixed with Whitewater albinos (those can be pretty or not very). List goes on. So not always easy to know what you have.

Once you see enough locality rosies, you get a feel for what is what, at least reasonably so.
