:Can anyone please tell me the current status of Gloydius?

:Spefifically, have G. blomhoffi and G. brevicaudus been combined?

This genus is in a state of flux, and a lot remains to be settled definitively. Somne authors treat brevicaudus as a subspecies of blonhoffii, others as a separate species altogether.

:Is G. ussuriensis still seperate or did it get combined as well?

G. ussuriensis is pretty much universally accepted as a full species. For some background, check out the link below, and specifically the Crotalinae 1999 page.

Wolfgang
