A Leucistic axolotl is not Albino. The root word “leuko” just means “white.” It’s a totally different primary gene. Leucistic is probably the most specific overall phenotype. As explained in the Axolotl.org page, they are Leucistic because the d/d genotype prevents the dark pigment from migrating across the body when the embryo develops. They are white or pink, yet they have black (or sometimes blue) eyes. A Leucistic will always have a d/d genotype, and it also must be either A/A or A/a (non-Albino). [1]

Leucism is caused by a mutation that results in fewer melanocytes being produced in the skin. Because melanocytes produce melanin, a dark pigment, axolotls with this mutation do not have the same patterns as the Wild-type morph. [2]
