Blotch count is meaningless.....

since there is no validity to the taxon gloydi (i.e. there is no such thing as a Dusty Hog) amd the blotch count was supposedly the way to tell Westerns from Dustys.

Because of that, you can tell the other two apart easily. Mexican Hogs have less than 6 azygous scales (a group of irregular scales just posterior to the rostral) and the Plains has 9 or more. Can't see that in your photo (you have to get a sharp, well light closeup of the top of the head).

It "looks" more like a Western to me.
