Ahaetulla spp. – Vine Snakes

Taxonomic Notes:

Many variations of the Vine Snake were historically included under Ahaetulla nasuta, which was listed as an Indian species. However, according to recent taxonomic work (Mallick et al. 2020), nasuta is endemic to Sri Lanka. Mallick et al. (2020) described several new species from India. The images included on this page have not yet been identified to the species as defined by Mallick et al. (2020). They will be moved under the correct species pages when experts have finished re-identifying them.
