To clarify, the range maps in Schulz show anomala only in South Korea. They show mostly anomala in North Korea with one locale for schrencki there. In adjacent China there are ranges for both subspecies (or species depending on your view) with the schrencki dying out as you go south and leaving only anomala. If there are non-anomala "schrencki" in South Korea then I believe this differs from Schulz.




>>John, if i understand you correctly, you are saying that schrenki range is only known as far south as North korea? If this is the recognized range, that I can say with certainty it is not accurate. Schrenki is found in south korea. Its complete range is uncertain to me at this time but i can easily find at least the general range from a snake collector that I know. I used some of his snakes during the making of the series and he had several schrenki that were collected in the south. I am sure he can shed some light on their range here.
>>
>>As far as the melanistic form, if i recall correctly, the belly is just as black. I am thinking it is schrenki and not anomala but i have no real basis for this line of thinking. I suppose unless there is a difference in scale count that the only way to confirm it would be the same manner that was used to elevate it to a species, mtDNA.
>>
>>I plan on doing scale counts this summer to ensure there is in fact no difference.
>>
>>Only time will tell as to what I can or cannot discover in relation to the various species, ranges, etc. through some field work but I figured it is a good time to try to absorb as much info as possible now while i wait for the snow to clear.
>>
>>Any links to literature pertaining to any of the s. korean species would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the info,
>>
>>Don
