In Reply to: Are Mexican MNTN kings Lamp. P. Knoblocki posted by jeph on May 05, 2003 at 17:12:25:
: Yes and no, knobs are a maxican mtn. king snake, but agalmas are too, which are san pedro mtn.kings, they are in the zinata family, and knobs are in the pyromelena family. And also, greeri, which is the durango mtn.king is a mexican mtn.king, thats why people should lable snakes carefully, cause saying mex.mtn.king could mean a couple differnt sub-species. Hope this helps.
Most of the time Mexican Mtn. King refers to L. p. knoblochi.
L. zonata agalma is usually called the Baja Mtn. King, they don't occur on the mainland.
L. m. "greeri" is usually called the Durango Mtn. King, it and it's close relatives the San Luis Potosi King and the Nuevo Leon King are sometimes refered to as Mexican Kings.
A more proper common name sometimes used for L. p. knoblochi is the Chihuahuan Mtn. King as they occur in the mountains of the Chihuahuan desert.
