Colour variation in Thecacera picta

November 13, 1998
From: Clay Bryce

Dear Bill,

I thought these pictures [see top of page]of Thecacera picta from Western Australia may be of interest. Nathalie Yonow's species T. vittata seems to be a synonym falling within this colour range. I have other shots showing a range of pattern variation.

All the best,

Thanks Clay,
Anyone got any comments? As with the discussion we are having about the range of colour variation in Thorunna florens , this is another example of how valuable it is to build up information about colour variation both within a geographic locality and throughout the range of a "species". ..
