:the simple fact is that "slowinskii" intergrades with emoryi in the blackland prairies. burbink shows a hundred mile gap between populations of "slowinskii" and "emoryi" in northeast texas. no such gap exists.

He also says there is no connection between "slowenskii" and Eastern Corns in Louisiana while ignoring the "red" corn population near Ball, LA.

: if you are the sort that believes that subspecies don't have any validity or usefulness, then just call it Elaphe guttata - which is what the snake is, after all!

Ahh, if we are saying what it is and assuming it is the truth, I'll agree that they are MOSTLY Elaphe guttata, but not completely. Although I SLIGHTLY disagree with a subspecies status given to this animal by Vaughan and her crew, it is much more likely to be the TRUTH than that crap Burbrink threw out.
