Records. Table 2.

Swamp Racer snakes were identified by their size (TL = 168.8 cm ± 32.5; n = 7) and head, which is distinct from the body, large eyes, short snout, and laterally compressed body. There were apical fossils on the dorsal scales and 8 supralabials and 15 dorsal scale rows in the middle of the body. Besides the 3 specimens we collected (ZUFMS-REP00283, REP02733 View Materials , REP02726 View Materials ), we used several specimens to help with identifications (ZUFMS-REP00249, REP00110 View Materials , REP01409 View Materials , REP02007 View Materials , REP02009 View Materials ).
