|VRHD - Summer Phase
Adult female. A more or less normally patterned VRHD with scorching yellow. The scarce amount of dark pigment to be found on this snake is confined to the nuchal area. The blotch color is difficult to define and can vary from specimen to specimen. Mauve, pinkish lavender come to mind but are not entirely accurate. Blotch color on normal deppei can range from deep matt black to silvery green.
