Coluber atratus Herrmann, 1804  

Coluber atratus Herrmann, 1804: 283   . – Type locality. Not given.—Onomatophore: Holotype: deposited in the “Musée zoologique de la ville de Strasbourg” (Strasbourg, France) but now lost (M.-D. Wandhammer, in litt., February 2009).

Status. Not a member of the Xenochrophis piscator   -complex, this taxon should be removed from the synonymy of Tropidonotus umbratus   and other synonyms of X. piscator   .

Comments. Schlegel (1837) and Cantor (1847: 90) regarded this species as a synonym of Tropidonotus umbratus ( Daudin, 1803)   . However, the description of the holotype of Coluber atratus Herrmann, 1804   shows that this taxon is not referable to the genus Xenochrophis   . Furthermore, both Schlegel (1837) and Cantor (1847: 90) mentioned another taxon, supposedly described by Herrmann (1804), C. brunneus   . We could not find any mention of this taxon in Herrmann’s book, and we cannot comment on its status.
