They are all T. natans, this is the only species of Typhlonectes imported into the USA. The only external difference is in the cloacal morphology with one having more radial lines in the cloaca than the other. You would need to anesthetize the caecilian to get an accurate count. (seek the help of a vet. I can dig the reference out later. )
