It appears to be a product of newporter kings, and San Diego types.

There are some key characters from these. Newporters carried the black on top the tail trait. Its very dominate.

The San Diego gene pool has the stripe continue on top of the tail, often breaking up into dots or dashes.

A banana king was first givin to kingsnake from an esturary north of San diego(natural morph). They are yellow and darker yellow(instead of brown)

Then later used to cover the lemon yellow kings with almost no dark(captive morph).

A true newporter is striped or broken striped down the top and barred on the sides. Of course good ones are right in the middle. And there are those like yours that tend to be very striped, and black bellied is common as well with these.

Yours appears to be a cross between a newporter, black on top the tail, and a strong influence from San diego striping. Cheers
