Oligodon taeniolatus fasciatus — MURTHY 2010 
DistributionIndia (Gujarat, Maharashtra, Punjab [Dino Aulakh, pers. comm.], Kerala, Tamil Nadu), Pakistan, Sri Lanka, S Turkmenistan (SW Kopet-Dag), E Iran, Afghanistan

ceylonicus: Sri Lanka

fasciatus: India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka

taeniolatus: Iran etc.; Type locality: non given  
Reproductionoviparous 
TypesTypes: BMNH 1946.1.3.38-39 (and possibly additional specimens).
Syntype: USNM 6200 [Oligodon subgriseum]
Syntypes: BMNH 1946.1.4.11–12, collected by Col. Sykes [fasciatus] 
Diagnosis 
CommentSimilar species: Has been confused with O. travancoricus. Many of the early species (spilonotus, ellioti, fasciatus) lumped by Boulenger as color varieties O. subgriseus, may be valid [F. WAGNER, pers. comm.].

Distribution: Possibly in Bhutan (Lenz 2012).
