    Another case in point is the Gammon Ranges python, distinct by colour and geographical location, yet not recognised as a separate subspecies.

    Yes, that's my image. It has been verified by a number of individuals with extensive doreanus experience as being a juvenile of that species. Two other juveniles have been seen as well as at least three adults photographed (but try as I may I could not locate a copy of or the owner of the Lockhart river image :( ).

    now just while we're on the subject of v indicus taxonomy, would anyone care to elaborate on the possible presence of v finschi on the mainland or torres strait islands?
