My point was that I'm not sure I support separating the races of Western Coachwhips into subspecies based on color or even geographical location. I do not believe pink coachwhips are separate species or subspecies from brown or black animals. My inclination is to treat all the current populations as M. f. testaceus and drop cingulum, piceus and other subspecies. Sorry if I failed to make that plain the first time.
