Ingram’s Brown Snake is the least well known member of the elapid genus Pseudonaja. Recent field work undertaken in southwestern Queensland has extended the known geographic range for the species. Aspects of the morphology and ecology of Ingram’s Brown Snake suggest that it shares much in common with an unrelated species, the Western Taipan Oxyuranus microlepidotus, to the extent that some confusion could arise in distinguishing between the two. Relevant aspects of the taxonomy and morphology of Pseudonaja and that of O. microlepidotus are discussed.
