Abstract

Storeria occipitomaculata were examined from 35 Minnesota localities. Minnesota represents a zone of intergradation between S. o. occipitomaculata and S. o. pahasapae established on the basis of several characters: number of infralabials, oculars, temporals, midbody scale rows, ventrals, caudals, and scales between the chin shields and first ventral; and the presence of nuchal spots and a light spot on the fifth supralabial.
