Nerodia erythrogaster ‘neglecta’
Jackson Co., Indiana. July 24, 2017.
My first neglecta was a big female, basking along the edge of a pond in southern Indiana. I’ve several other since then, basking alongside water in summer.
Note: The long-standing subspecies for the plain-bellied water snake (Nerodia erythrogaster) have been sunk, making this a life-list artifact that I chose to retain for historical purposes.
HerpMapper records for this species are here.
