Lol, thanks for your help anyways. No, I haven't tried looking under a black light. I never thought of that. That's a really good idea! He's one of the "females" that turned out to be male, but I still couldn't figure out how many branches he had. Haha. If I used a different girl, would the original boy be okay or is he still too excessive?
I can't help you with him. Sorry. All I can tell you is that it is excessive. I have a black, and I have tried counting his rays but it is impossible. Have you tried photographing him with a back light?
I'm having trouble counting this male's rays. His coloring is making it sooo hard! He looks like excessive branching as well, but knowing his ray could would be helpful in the least. So....would it be too much to ask if you could help? Also, I'm sorry that the pictures are so big. I can't really get them much smaller. :P
