If you know rosy enthusiasts, the delineations between locales can get down to minor details. For example, a Whitewater rosy vs a Verbenia rosy, even though the habitat is very much the same and the locations are connected within the habitat and very close to one another. But, some Verbenia rosies look slightly different than some Whitewater rosies, and it can be a noticeable difference. Whitewater does have the river, so that may change things up a bit. Plus it is fun to get all anal over locality. Rosies make great subjects for locality delineations.

Is the habitat the same? Is the plant community the same? I would call them what they are. Or call them by the mountain range they are in, like Little San Bernardino Mtns locality Rimrock area (did I get the correct range??). A potential buyer of offspring would appreciate that info. I know I would. If I then bred it to a snake from Pipe's road, I would call them by the mtn range and then state where the each of the parents came from.

Funny because when you see a rosy from Arizona for sale on kingsnake, they just say the mountain range typically. They don't get down to the roads they were found on. But in So Cal it gets specific. Probably because so many sub-localities have been carved up and have become essentially isolated due to development and freeways. Outside of Calif and Ariz, I don't think people care as much. But in So Cal, we are locality nazis when it comes to rosies from So Cal.

I have spent some time along Hwy 243, and I have a fondness for that area for some reason. If I had a rosy from there, I would want it known exactly where. It may not be important to someone else or to the rosy for that matter, but I still want to know. So my advice is to follow that guideline. It will probably generate more interest among potential buyers, unless its some person in Ohio that has never seen the lower desert areas of So Cal.
