: Derek,

: Mulgas...great snakes now....

: Most specimens of Cannia (Pseudechis) australis (see wells & wellington for the name change) are a brown colour.

Due to recent heated discussions over Aussie/PNG proposed Elapidae taxa changes, I have become somewhat skeptical as to which proposals are valid and those that are not. Would I be safe in saying that this taxa change from Pseudechis to Cannia would be recognized by the majority of subject matter experts or otherwise?

: Darwins, St George's, Wheatbelts, Pilbara, N.S.W Mulgas are all a shade of brown...generally darker as you go South. Red Brown, Gold, Grey Brown...some reticulated, some not, but mainly brown.

Good Info!!!

: They snakes from in particular the Eyre Peninsular in South Australia are black/dark with the first edge of the scale light yellow or green.

Interesting!

Cheers,

Derek

: ..thats why I tend to use Mulga rather than King Brown. But the same argument can be said for Mulga...as they are not restricted to that habitat type.

: Rgeards,

: Scott.

: P.S couple of other examples...Tiger Snake (unbanded and even spotted snakes occur), Stephen's Banded Snake....Unbanded forms present),
: Yellow Faced Whip Snake and the list goes on....
