In Reply to: Can someone tell me if black & blue racers are the same? posted by Dave on April 26, 2002 at 23:35:06:
The blue racer (Coluber constrictor foxi) and the southern black racer (Coluber constrictor priapus) are subspecies of the same species. Their ranges do meet in southern Illinois and Ohio and in this area they are intergrades-- a blendiing between the two sunspecies. Blue racers also intergrade with Norhtern black racers(C.c. constrictor) to the east and Eastern yellowbelly racers (C.c. flaviventris) to the west. Hope this helps.
