>>Pennsylvania just passed a law that states that we can only have 1 E. alleghaniensis - Eastern Rat Snake (without a special permit - which I will gladly get if I know I need it.

The Pantherophis obsoletus sub-species were done away with. They were all merged into one of 3 species based on geographical location. Eastern (alleghaniensis), Midland (spiloides), Western (obsoleus)... some like the black rat and gray rat are now part of all three groups as it's a geographical based breakdown.

If I remember correctly, the merger was...

P. obsoletus - Western Rats were made up from: P. o. spiloides, P. o. lindheimerii, P. o. obsoletus

P. spiloides - Midland Rats were made up from: P. o. obsoletus, P. o. spiloides

P. alleghaniensis - Eastern Rats were made up from: P. o. obsoletus, P. o. quadrivittata, P. o. rossalleni, P. o. spiloides
