TLDR
PIM is useful to identify individual P. gonzagai; however, before implementing the technique in animal-monitoring studies of other taxa, one must evaluate the suitability for t e tar et species and ca ibrate t e re ative efficienc of t e soft are pro rams in identifying individuals.
Being a bright snake: Testing aposematism and mimicry in a neotropical forest
TLDR
Interestingly, opossum avoided the Micrurus corallinus and Erythrolamprus aesculapii replicas that resembled the model, suggesting that opportunistic predators, as the opossums, may be important selective agents in mimicry complexes.

data and files for: "Have coral snake mimics diversified more than non-mimics?"
TLDR
It is shown that there is no detectable influence of color types in the dynamics of diversification in Dipsadidae, and it is argued that non-mimic contrasting patterns might serve as pre-adaptations to mimicry of coral snakes.

HEAD TRIANGULATION IN TWO COLUBRINE SNAKES: PROBABLE BEHAVIOURAL REINFORCEMENT OF BATESIAN MIMICRY
TLDR
Two Israeli aglyphous colubrid snakes seem to mimic venomous viperid snakes, and any of five hypotheses may enable the evolution of such mimicry systems in which the model may be lethal.
BEHAVIOURAL TRIANGULATION OF THE HEAD IN THREE BOIGINE SNAKES: POSSIBLE CASES OF MIMICRY
TLDR
In Israel three rear-fanged snakes of the genus Telescopus possess a defensive display in which they coil, pose in readiness to strike, and often simultaneously flatten and triangulate the head, so they become similar to the venomous Viperidae in general.
Spatial and Temporal Drivers of Phenotypic Diversity in Polymorphic Snakes
TLDR
It is suggested that complex patterns of phenotypic variation in polymorphic systems may be a fundamental outcome of the conspicuousness of morphs and that explicit tests of temporal and geographic variation are critical to the interpretation of conspicuousness and mimicry.
REPTILIA: SQUAMATA: COLUBRIDAE Catalogue of American Amphibians and Reptiles. (Linnaeus) Rough Green Snake
TLDR
Herpetodryas aestivus is a composite name that included not only Herpetodrys (Opheodtys) aestvus, but also Philodrya aestivu Dumkril, Bibron, and DumCril 1854, of southern South America.

THE CORAL SNAKE “MIMIC” PROBLEM IN PANAMÁ
TLDR
An almost complete acquaintance with the history, facts, and status of the coral snake mimic problem may be gained by the perusal of four papers; those of Cope 1860, Wallace 1867, Gadow 1911, and Sternfeld 1913.
THE CORAL SNAKE “MIMIC” PROBLEM AND PROTECTIVE COLORATION
TLDR
A simpler solution of the problem is achieved by considering the coral snake and its "mimics" to be cases of convergent evolution of protective coloration, both concealing (disruptive) and deflective (illusion effect).
Segregation Ratios of Mutant Alleles from Wild Populations of Mus musculus
Five mutant alleles found in different populations of wild mice have been shown to segregate from male heterozygotes in ratios greatly exceeding 50 per cent. This leads to the expectation that they

TLDR
In his analysis of D. obscure, Gershenson (1928) found that the size of progenies of sr males equaled and the egg mortality did not exceed that of normal males, and concluded that either sr males produced studies on "SEX-RATIO" in DROSOPHILA PSEUDOOBSCURA.
