Coordinator notes: After Miller's revision, apparently all "chiriquensis" are perfusa, north of Mexico. Apparently true chiriquensis are only much further south in Mexico. I have caught this also, and phenotypically I think there must be a huge range of pattern and color, but I guess he did the DNA studies.
