Re: REPOST: Wild Ptyas dhumnades

My main source (apart from a few small papers I saw) is the 2009 field guide on Taiwan herps which has all the latest taxonomic changes. The author is a friend of mine, and very conservative when it comes to using new names, so I'd wager that's indeed the standard now. (There might, however, be a po...

Re: REPOST: Whole Buncha Bamboo Vipers
