Df spangles can have a tint of color either green or blue depending on their base color and sometimes they will be cinnamon as well but I don't think they can have markings.

They can have some extremely faint markings sometimes, but it isn't too common. Spangle is a colour removing/reducing mutation and sometimes the colour isn't removed 100% in a double factor spangle. They can also have markings caused by other mutations such as opaline or cinnamon. I hope I helped!

If it has iris rings, it's a double factor spangle for sure. I can't quite tell from this picture. The cere also looks kind of purplish and usually DF spangles have normal blue ceres if male.

I have a DF spangle male who has dusty blue markings
on his belly. I was told they would probably intensify
after his first moult, but they actually faded a bit.
