The name thayeri is also simply a name made up from ONE individual. Actually the first individual was called, "Leonis" Then as more individuals popped up in N.L., they were different.

As it turns out, like many Mexican montane kings in this family, they have a "blairs phase"(wide red bands), a Alterna phase(no red bands), and a inbetween phase(medium red bands), which is dubbed "thayeri"

But, each population is also unique and different. Also of note, the original description was based on animals from the east side of the divide. All the animals in captivity came from the west side. The only reason "Thayeri" was used was it was the closer then any other montane king. Those animals actually keyed out as Mex Mex, with different colors.

All that is mentioned to point out, the PURE they are talking about, is not so pure to start with. Those worried about this mucking up the waters are better off washing off their boots, as the waters are already mucked up. Best wishes and good luck

P.S. I also collected the first black thayeri and was first to produce them as well.
