"A medium-sized snake with the strong musculature of a constricting species, characterized by singularly irregular dark brown markings on a yellowish ground color. These spots may cover only a single scale, or may be confluent into blotches or zigzag lines. It is distinguished from its northern subspecies (described below) by a much higher number of ventrals and caudals. It is a common snake of the arid coastal region from sea level to at least 6,000 feet altitude in the Rimac Valley."
