Field notes from Isla Colon:

 

This color morph of R. lebeau is more common on Isla Colon than the cinnamon-brown version pictured here. This individual come to a mercury vapor light in an open area near the forest.

 

The females I have found on the island thus far all look about the same, colored somwhere between the male forms I and II.
