>>You'd probably have to delve into the old world sand boas, I imagine.>>

I saved several of the papers dealing with snake phylogeny, I think I need to dig them out to see which species is probably a good candidate as outgroup to both the rubber and rosy boas. Eryx reinhardtii may not be a good candidate. It may only be convergently similar to the rubber and rosy boas, or else their similarities are plesiomorphic.
