It should also be noted that many wild populations of N. sanguinea have introgressed with N. ramispina, macfarlanei and hybrids among these three. The coloration of N. sanguinea may appear to be darker-blackish (perhaps somewhere crossed over to ramispina), mottling or speckling undertones (perhaps somewhere crossed over to macfarlanei) and colors or patterns of both.
This species needs should be investigated further, like N. platychila, hybrids between these species are common and in some instances what we have been calling N. sanguinea, may in fact be a hybrid!
