there, at the most.
Rediscovery and range extension of Coluber

Prey movement and predatory behavior of juvenile western yellow-bellied racers, Coluber
All of the large colubrids captured during this investigation (Elaphe obsoleta and Coluber
constrictor) were taken in funnel or snake traps, as they seem to be capable of escaping from pitfall traps.
Relictual populations of the toad, Bufo valliceps, and the reptiles, Eumeces tetragrammus, Scincella laterale, Coluber
constrictor, Nerodia erythrogaster, and Nerodia rhombifera, also are known to inhabit the basin (McCoy and Minckley, 1969).
In this report, and on the basis of precedent only, I follow Dowling and Price (1988), who proposed the new genus Bogertophis for inclusion of the two species Coluber
subocularis Brown, 1901, and C.
The genera Coluber
and Masticophis cannot be separated based upon vertebral characters (Holman, 1969, 1979; Parmley, 1986a).

Vertebrae of Masticophis are inseparable from those of Coluber
These vertebrae are clearly assignable to Coluber
or Masticophis based on their elongated shape; long, relatively thin neural spines; and well developed, uniformly thin hemal keels.
