What is the current taxonomy for the southern pacific rattlesnake, formerly Crotalus viridis helleri? I heard that there was a change to C. oreganus helleri and that there was a suggestion that the southern pac should be upgraded to species status, becoming C. helleri. My question is, did C. helleri become official, will it, and if not, is it still C. o. helleri?
