Yes, I know it's to late to change the namnes, but I was wondering if someone has done some mating with those brownspotted leos to figure out if it is genetic hypomelanistic, becouse if you know the true genetics you can make other morphs.
If you have a true hypomelanistic and mated it to a axantic it could produce a very pale leo (ghost?) with pale brown spots on nearly white body.

To know the right genetics among a breed you can creat a lot of new colors.

:your thoughts make sense, but It really is pointless to try and change the names now. They are known by what they are, and it would be too hard to change them. My normla male has brown spots/not black but so does a lot of other normals that I have seen. Hypomelanistic does fit as there is less black, meaning there is less black spots.
