CommentSynonymy: listed as synonym of Zamenis karelini by Wallach et al. 2014: 565 and others. There are no reliable diagnostic characters to distinguish Platyceps rogersi from P. ventromaculatus (Gray, 1834) according to DISI et al. (2001) and SCHÄTTI (2006). 
EtymologyNamed after Madge and Sherman A. Minton (1919-1999), a physician by training.
