: Tried to get the photos on this page, wouldn't work, now I am out of time. Anyhow, I put two links at the end of this post which hopefully will take you to the photos, if you are interested.

: I bought this snake about a year ago, and it was sold to me as Liophis poecilogyras. I have since seen what seems to be the same species in a book listed as Leimadophis poecilogyras. I spoke to a friend of mine who is a herpetologist, and he said he wasn't sure, as things have been being shifted back and forth between those two genus. So, anyone have a suggestion?

Hello you have a Liophis poecilogyrus, a comon semiacuatic coluber from argentina, probably this specimen came from Buenos aires, cause the patern it's typical of this zone.
The correct name of the spices it's:
Liophis poecilogyrus.
Leimadophis does not exist any more for Argentina.
A very small number of spices are now forming the leimadophis genera, anda they are from Brazil and Central America
