Nice head shot, & it is a bilineatus, by both dorsal color/twin lateral stripes, ventral pattern & location. Taeniatus in central Az stays ~ 4000' +, tho I have seen them quite a bit lower in western areas where they coexist w/ flagellum. I know of nowhere that the various striped whips are sympatric. Sonorans will be steel grey, have the twin stripes stop mid body, a light ventral, the stripers (like lateralis) are black, fully length single striped, red suffused ventral-posterior.

: I found this snake in Pinnacle Peak Park Arizona. Unfortunately, this was the best pic I could get. As soon as I got closer he backed down into the hole. Where I live the range of the two species overlap, just wondering how to distinguish one from the other.
