TypesHolotype: NRS = RMS 3141 
CommentDiagnosis: Corallus blombergi is distinguishable from members of the C. hortulanus complex (C. cookii, C. grenadensis, C. hortulanus, C. ruschenbergerii) by the combination of presence or absence of nasal contact (usually contact in C. hortulanus complex, usually not in C. blombergi) and number of subcaudals (94–137 in C. hortulanus complex, 76–86 in C. blombergi). It is distinguishable from C. cropanii on the basis of maximum number of dorsal scale rows (<35 in C. cropanii, 50–55 in C. blombergi), and from C. caninus on the basis of maximum number of dorsal scale rows (63–77 in C. caninus), and ventrals (251–269 in C. blombergi, 186–209 in C. caninus). See the ‘Diagnosis’ for C. annulatus for comparisons with that species [HENDERSON et al. 2001]. 
EtymologyNamed after the collector of the holotype, Rolf Blomberg.
