These are exceptionally good photographs - well done! This appears to be E. heatwolei - it has yellowish lower laterals with black flecks and from what can be seen this colour pattern continues onto the ventrals (evident in the first photo). There is a light coloured stripe above the eye running back onto the neck. I would have expected more black marks on throat but this character is quite variable. The front edge of the ear opening might be black (despite a good clear side on photo still hard to see) but i think this last character is unreliable. WillO
