    Arrow HARLEQUIN!

    This morph was actually thought of as rare at one point. It has definetly made its way into to our hearts and is among the most sought after morphs on the market today.

    Color:

    Once again remember the order of description, and with a Harlequin there is always pattern, so a color desription is always available if you wish to use it.

    Pattern:

    Zones A and B are typically light colored with dark streaking. Zones C and E should contain at least 25% pattern coverage and zone D should be full of pattern. Some Harlequins develope an exceptional amount of pattern that almost hides the base coloration and connects with the dorsal is various areas. These are called Extreme Harlequins and should have 75% or more zone coverage in areas C and E. Some extremes may fall a little short of the 75% coverage but will have multiple sections in zone C where the pattern is connecting with zone B. This is an exception to the coverage standard and is also considered an Extreme Harliquin.

    Heres some examples of some standard Harliquins:

    BY IMPERIALBP AND CSLINCA

    BY OO3MENACE AND SCORPNPRINCESS

    BY SUNGMINA AND THONGWEDGIE


    Heres some examples of some Extreme Harliquins:


    BY SCORPNPRINCESS AND G's GECKOS

    Is there such a thing as a Phantom Harlequin? Pasquale, when he is fully fired (which is rare outside of his tank), looks like he has the classic Harley pattern on his lower lats. He is a dalmatian(nearly super dal as of this post, 85 red and black spots so far) phantom pinstripe so I was wondering if it was possible that there was a phantom harlequin.

    I think the condition of having a very muted color with harlequin pattern could be considered a "phantom harlequin" but I'm not sure if people would use that term or even see it as a desirable trait worth naming. I guess I would have to see examples.

    I think "phantom" could apply to some extent to explain the phenotypic trait of having diminished-looking markings, but I wouldn't want to distinguish it as a morph because it doesn't really change the "standards" as they have been defined. I think it might get too confusing for general conversation. However, it could be a trait to work with that might develop into something different in the crestie world.

    So I know my girl is a harlequin, 95% pinstripe (has a little gap near her back legs without spikes) but I've been starting to wonder, could she possibly be a lavender Harlequin? The breeder I got her from didn't say her morph so I have no idea. Fully fired down there is obvious purple all over her (she rarely fully fires down) and fired up she's all black, this is the best picture I have of her being fired down

    So could she possibly be a lavender or have a bit of lav in her?
