I believe you're referring to the colour phase the C.temensis go through as it matures. Assu literally means 'three bar' that defines the characteristics in it's sexually matured form. They're all C.temensis nevertheless.

Both species will have varied patterns but Speckled Pavon have a more slender body, more greyish in colour and tend to have this horizontal pattern behind its eye. Juvenile Pavons can be easily identified by its speckled pattern on its body while the speckles may fully disappear as it fully matures.
