We studied the variation in morphological features seen in a large sample of the colubrid snake Tantilla calamarina from a single locality in Guerrero, Mexico. We confirm the status of Tantilla martindelcampoi as a synonym of T. calamarina. We also discuss the fossorial adaptations of the seven members of the T. calamarina group and the monotypic genus Geagras.
