Abstract: Analysis of the geographical variation in the genus Scaphiophis suggests that S. raffreyi Bocourt should be reinstated as a full species, with S. calciatti Scortecci as a synonym. In S. albopunctatus Peters there are ring clines in counts of midbody scale rows and ventrals, the terminal populations in northern Zambia and south western Tanzania showing no overlap in these counts.
