Hi Todd,

Arnold Kluge did a study a few years ago which quite clearly showed P. reticulatus to group with other Asian/African python, not with any of the Australian Morelia/Liasis/whatever. The same applies to P. timorensis, despite its similarity to Morelia amethistina, which led Hoser to classify it with the latter.

Kluge's study was based on a wide array of morphological features, so I would suggest that his results are probably pretty robust.

Reference:
Kluge, A.G. 1993. Aspidites and the phylogeny of Pythonine snakes. Records of the Australian Museum, Suppl. 19, pp. 1-77.

Cheers,

Wolfgang
