Pseudechis porphyriacus taxonomy

Hello All,
I am preparing an article on Pseudechis porphyriacus and any comments on morphological variation in the species would be of interest. In particular, does anyone have any ecological data on the Atherton Black Snake from north-eastern Queensland? I am referring of course to that beautifully coloured morph from the rainforest. Ray Hoser advised me last year that he was revising P. porphyriacus and when I mentioned my interest in this population, he also mentioned that he had formally described it as a new species, but I have yet to see the paper. My experience with this northern population is very limited, but it is clearly distinct morphologically from all other Pseudechis porphyriacus that I have seen.
Thanks

Richard Wells
