A Taxonomic study of the sauritus group of the gartersnakes, genus Thamnophis Fitzinger. By Douglas Athon Rossman. Abstract (Bibliography) Bibliography: leaves Manuscript (Ph. D) - University of thor: Douglas Athon Rossman. Thamnophis sauritus sauritus, the eastern ribbon snake or common ribbon snake, is one of four subspecies of the ribbon snake found in the southeastern United States.. Some similar species are the western ribbon snake, common garter snake, plains garter snake, and Butler's garter snake.. The other three subspecies are the northern (T. s. septentrionalis), southern (T. Family: Colubridae. Rossman, D. A.

The genus Thamnophis was described by Leopold Fitzinger in as the genus for the garter snakes and ribbon snakes. Many snakes previously identified as their own genera or species have been reclassified as species or subspecies in are currently 35 species within the genus, with several subspecies within some of them. A clade consisting of the ribbon snakes (T. sauritus and T. proximus) and the common garter snake (T. sirtalis) is placed as the sister group to all other Thamnophis (i.e., the Mexican + widespread clades) in our analyses. Fungal taxonomy has witnessed a sudden explosion in the number of new taxa over the last two decades and given the recent trends in the discovery of new taxa in China, Thailand and Sri Lanka (e.g Karunarathna et al. , Nguanhom et al. , Wu et al. , Doilom et al.

SYNOPSIS: The Sauritus group of the gartersnakes is composed of two polytypic species, Thamnophis sauritus (Linnaeus) and Thamnophis proximus (Say), com- monly called the ribbonsnakes.
