Dear Joe,

Yes this is C. miamiranum. The dorsal surface is quite variable in colour and yours is one of the most spectacular colour forms. One thing they all have in common [see Fact Sheet] is that the underside is white with a spectacular emerald green reticulate pattern.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
