In Reply to: Could this be D.c. orizabensis? It may well be... posted by regalringneck on February 17, 2003 at 07:48:21:

This site http://biology.bangor.ac.uk/~bss166/Taxa/Drymar.htm lists the taxa as follows:


The recognised taxa of Drymarchon are thus as follows:

- Drymarchon caudomaculatus
- Drymarchon corais
- Drymarchon couperi
- Drymarchon margaritae
- Drymarchon melanurus, with the following subspecies:
D. m. melanurus
D. m. erebennus
D. m. orizabensis
D. m. rubidus
D. m. unicolor

Why is is that most other people will put the word Corais in front of all of these species? And please excuse me if I am not using the correct wording, I am not a scientist. I am an Electronics Engineering and Computer Systems Instructor. Well, I guess some would say I am in the Scientific field but not the biology portion of it.

Also, this supposedly new species "Drymarchon caudomaculatus", can anyone find a different picture of it? No matter where this snake is mentioned the same old picture is being shown. I am starting to think that there is only 1 snake that actually exists. Also, I could be showing my ignorance here so bear with me.

Greg
