    Yeah definitely. They're very closely related and D. rufotaenia is quite rare, so they may be forced to take the common D. ravindra as mates.

    Now the question is...are these intermediates a result of genetic introgression between these 2 species
    Oh whoops sorry, didn't see that! Was this pygmy found at USR?
