    I have a palladus or palladia, and a normal... but this one is near black-gray! Locale or variant name anyone?

    No idea, from a wholesaler that had Palladia as well somehow all under the same generic description.

    It is Hadrurus arizonensis. Hadrurus spadix doesn't not have the crescent shaped 'mask'. Other Hadrurus sp like H. anzaborrego or H. obscurus have a different shaped 'mask'.

    'pallidus' is nothing more than a pale arizonensis, it's very common wherever sand is pale.

    the darker arizonensis come from habitats with dark soil, like volcanic rock.
