"foxturtle",

Thank You. I had actually forgotten it was formerly a subspecies: Elaphe obsoleta obsoleta. And so, Pantherophis alleghaniensis stil covers the range it always had (basically, the whole East Coast...) as "Elaphe obsoleta sspp." in the past; just as one species now instead of subspecies.

Thanks again!!

Timothy

>>Your native black rat snake was Elaphe obsoleta obsoleta, and is now considered Pantherophis alleghaniensis.

>>Pantherophis alleghaniensis is comprised of all obsoleta-complex rat snakes found east of the Appalachian Mountains, and the Chattahoochee/Apalachicola Rivers further south. It is has not been broken into any other subspecies, and is not in and of itself considered a subspecies.
