Southern Black Racer
April 18, 2003- Alexander Co. IL

I'm not sure about the true status of Coluber constrictor in Southern Illinois.  I have heard that these racers are the sub-species priapus but I have not seen this for sure in text.  Until I hear otherwise, I will call them Southern Black Racers.

I've found this species in the following counties:
Alexander Co. IL
Jackson Co. IL
Johnson Co. IL
Pope Co. IL
