Hi Jim. This series of specimens is a nice example of the variation in general colour pigmentation. Note: the dark form (to the right) has a yellow median longitudinal line on its back, in more light forms (the left one) this yellow line is more dagger shaped, in very light colour forms (in the middle) the dagger becomes more fuzzy.

Note that the dark rectangular patch at their butts is distinctly present in all colour forms.
