Coordinator notes: Best guess as to ID. These photos will most like remain at genus level on BG. Here is the comment from the Info link on BG -- "Identification Species identification difficult. Counting the number of spots is often not a reliable method for determining species. Many of the images placed under species should probably be moved back here to genus."
