Default Namansi Reef

Hey guys - I have a local guy here trying to sell me some Namansi Reef but these don't look much like them. Even with a low quality picture from a distance I can tell they aren't. Namansi reef that I have seen don't have the prominent striping pattern as adults. These are suppose to be half WC, half F1. I'm just not seeing it.

What do you guys think?
Thanks

Nah, I have a buddy with Namansi moorii so I see them often. The ones in this pic look to be more of a brown color. Looks to be a brichardi of some sort at least

I would say Namansi I. Population 8.20.....

Definitely not Namansi II, Population 9.0

Kipili don't have any reddish tone to their head at all.
