>>Beautiful; Really looks like a flame job on it's head. Assuming it is one of the Getulas, is that a pure line-bread sub species, a mix of different subs or a hybrid?

As far as we know these are straight up Florida Kings. Tom Agosta acquired Bob Fenyas collection years ago and has been selectively breeding for high red flames. I was told that he bred a flame to a NE Axanthic, and got some crazy looking babies, and from that cross which both were pure lines, he developed some extreme flames. This one has hypo in it I believe. Zenny Felician believes their is a recessive gene in the extremes that are responsible for the intense red. He coined these Erythristic. The red color carries forward even in hets, but is most pronounced in the homozygous individuals.
