The northern ribbonsnake (Thamnophis sauritus septentrionalis) that is discussed in this report is the only subspecies of the eastern ribbonsnake (Thamnophis sauritus) that occurs in Canada.  For purposes of COSEWIC, which designates only species that occur in Canada, these two names should be regarded as synonymous.
