This is probably a dumb question but I am new to the Pamphobeteus genus and all the different species...is Pampho. "esmeraldas" actually considered a distinct, scientifically described species or is the speciation unknown hence the name "esmeraldas" in quotes?

Is Pampho. "esmeraldas" similar to or the same as Pampho. "platyomma?"

Also is the care of "esmeraldas" the same as for other Pamphobeteus species?

When you see a genus name, followed by sp. anything, it means its a known, but undescribed species.

Theyre related...theyre similar to, but not the same as platyomma.

yes.
