I know this is considered out of range but the range for iNat is based off of Burbrink's paper which showed that slowinskii was separated from P. emoryi when in fact it is not at all and slowinskii probably shouldn't be considered a good species separate from guttata.

I agree that i>Pantherophis slowinskii might not be a good species, but if we consider it (as SSAR does, would this be Pantherophis slowinskii or i>Pantherophis emoryi?

Also - what do you think of this one: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/150046
Pretty far west for Pantherophis emoryi no?

Yep, that was a young obsoleta, I made a new ID suggestion

Dixon would like to call slowinski a subspecies and he would consider the above a good example but the dividing line between slowinskii and emoryi is a bit of a gray area which is roughly the eastern edge of the main black land prairie in our area. but getting less defined as you get to the coast.
