Taxon Term is the data value of either a classification term “Animalia” or classification metadata such as name authors. DNA extraction, amplification and sequencing DNA was extracted from scales, blood, liver or shed skins, following specific protocols for each eleganns Bricker et al. Bibliotheques et Muses de la Ville de Neuchatel, Phylogenetic relationships of elapid snakes based on cytochrome b mtDNA sequences.

Alsophis elegans (Tschudi, 1845)

This question must be resolved with further research. Several recent studies have addressed the classification of caenophidians based on molecular studies reviewed in the Introduction. These regions were used to split both sequences 12S and 16S into six fragments, each of them comprising approximately base pairs and acting as regions of homology constraint for the alignment search.

Since there seems to be no compelling evidence that would support an wlsophis position of Grayia within Colubroidea, we here refrain to include the genus in a separate subfamily and place it in Colubridae incertae sedis. Species and generic level taxonomy of pseudoxyrhophids needs more research. The identity of the syntypes of Dryophylax alslphis with comments on their locality data.

The genera Pseudablables and Xenoxybelis are found nested within Philodryas and are thus synonymized here with the latter in order to retrieve a monophyletic group. Reptilien und Batrachier aus Peru und Bolivien.

In any case, we note that there is evidence from the present study and from the immunological comparisons of Cadle a,b,c for three major clades within the Dipsadidae as we conceive it, namely a North American clade, a Dipsadinae clade, and a Xenodontinae clade see also Pinou et al.

Nucleic Acids Research, The Galapagos species are presently under study and will be dealt in more detail elsewhere.

A new genus for South American snakes related to Rhadinaea obtusa Cope Colubridae and resurrection of Taeniophallus Cope for the “Rhadinaea” brevirostris group. We disagree with portions of the taxonomies used in some of these studies and here comment elegan the nature of our disagreements, and why we do not use a few previously named taxa in our classification.

Phylogenetic relationships of colubroid snakes based on mitochondrial DNA sequences. However, similarly to our reasoning above for the recognized tribes, we decided to allocate these two genera in separate tribes because they do not share any known morphological synapomorphy. South American snakes related to Lygophis boursieri: We do not have a clear explanation for this frame-shift mutation, because the first deletion inserts a stop codon at position AA sequenceprobably disabling the c-mos protein.

Bulletin of the Antivenin Institute of America, 2: Comments on the revival of the colubrid snake subfamily Heterodontinae. This clade is supported by a single putative morphological synapomorphy: Until a well-supported phylogeny is obtained, we recommend against recognizing Hoser’s new taxonomy. Snakes of the genera Diaphorolepis and Synophis and the colubrid subfamily Xenoderminae. The present analysis suggests that Pseudoeryx and Hydrops represent two successive outgroups to Helicops.
