You are correct. There may have been once uppon a time, banana phase C. Pectinata but I have never seen or caught a true banana phase. The closest I have caught to a banana was a mild yellow animal which turned pinkish/cream color as an adult. I also agree with Mark and too beleive that banana phase pectinata are or should be considered a seperate subspecies for the same reasons he mentioned. In C.pectinata, mild yellow pigmentation does not evolve into darker yellow. Dark browns turn into deep yellowing. Mild yellow turns into white, cream, or pinkish coloration. This is a picture of what a juvenile pectinata with mild yellow could turn out to be. I'll post some more pics.
