Hi:

This is my first post. I photographed a garter snake today, June 15, 2013 at the Dungeness NWR in Sequim, Clallam Co., Washington. The habitat is coniferous forest typical of the Pacific Northwest with Douglas Fir, Western Hemlock, Big Leaf Maple, etc. Can someone tell me if the snake is a Northwestern Garter Snake (Thamnophis ordinoides) or Common Garter Snake (Thamnophis sirtalis). Are these scientific names currently valid or has the taxonomy changed? Thanks.
