This is a list of snakes by family, subfamily and genus, mostly according to the continuing work of Dr. Roy W. McDiarmid, available through ITIS.[1] The one exception is the family Colubridae because ITIS information for it is currently incomplete. In this case, taxonomic data from the New Reptile Database was used instead,[2] combined with some information for authorities, years and common names from ITIS.

Infraorder Alethinophidia Nopcsa, 1923[edit]

Infraorder Scolecophidia Cope, 1864[edit]
