What to call the 'reduced patterned' KSB

I think most are in agreement if you sell a 'Dodoma' you should be selling a snake that originated or its parents originated from Dodoma Valley, Tanzania.

The problem in the hobby is that 'Dodomas' also tend to have a significantly reduced pattern along the body and the faces.

This pattern is becoming more desirable not only in our normal colored KSBs but also in our Anerys.

I've seen Jeff Holloway's and Scott Miller's 'reduced patterned' anery's. They are amazing (maybe one or both of you guys could post some pictures?).

The problem in the pet trade is there is not a set name for this significantly reduced patterned trait.

I have seen the use of Super Flame at times to describe KSBs that exhibit this desired trait but I have also seen super flame used to describe KSBs that do not.

We all know we will pay much more for a 'significantly reduced patterned' KSB. They are more rare and more desirable.

But, we do not have a uniform name for this trait. A Dodoma is technically and confusingly incorrect (because it is a locality).

Most of us on this forum are working to produce these reduced patterned KSBs but I think we should also work to name this trait and all work together to propugate a name for it.

Thoughts, ideas, etc.
