Its the same. Both enderlicheri. Dabola is a catch location which sometimes seems to have a different color morph. Still an endli but an endli with your pinky in the air. Lol jk.

Sp Dabola is a undescribed specimen that possess traits from Lapradei or PBB. Here’s a link below from Toyin when he first brought them in for us to see.

Op think endli mixed with lap characteristics. Look at hoa's pics they have sort of a lap headshape and lap horizontal lines but endli bars. Sometimes but not easy to see.
