The black belly is not a definite marker when it comes to condas and neither is the dorsal pattern. There are some very low expression condas that have normal looking dorsals and bellies. And there are normal that have all black bellies and dorsals that resemble condas.

One thing that is consistent with the conda gene that does not appear in normal is the "white wall" that separates the dorsal from the belly. That is the only true marker of the morph that does not change no matter how low expression the conda is.

When it comes to the co-dominant conda gene being mixed with recessives, the bellies can also look normalish in those combos. Again, the only consistent marker is the unbroken white wall on the snakes lateral.
