Thanks for clear things up Mark and Kelly.....and thank you Matt for opening this conversation. In the past few years that i had the pleasure of working with this species....it seems that almost every answer leads to more questions. I have in my collection, about 40 pectinata that were "CB" in Mexico and sold as banana morphs. I can say they are totally different in growth rate, markings and behavior than the TRUE banana morph that few breeders has produced in U.S. Physically, they are thinner, longer, faster growing and comes in different variations of yellow, grey and green. Behavior wise, they have been timid to the point i rarely seen them move in my presence. Their behavior, unlike the true banana morphs, are similar to the wild caught C. pectinata from FL. Although it is always prudent, especially in the case of C. pectinata, to ask for parent photos, i would not trust the parent photos that has been circulated as such if the babies are from Mexico.
