    No and not really, it would be very uncommon and I don't think where you would find them would count as suburban

    Are you sure you have the single subcaudals with a divided anal correct?? Hemiaspis is the only genus I know with that arrangement.

    The diagram is likely drawn that way only to highlight the different scales - ventrals vs anal vs caudal, as well as divided vs single. It certainly is not representative of Australian genera, as most have either both single or both divided and, as Scott pointed out, there is one genera (of 2 sp) with that particular arrangement.

    Well my sources say it has divided anal scales and single subcaudals. It's a sea snake.

    Does the name of the genus begin with a vowel?

    That possibility occurred to me but I dismissed it. I figured that would involve just blind guessing, going through possibilities one at a time, as they are not able to be kept and any that people come across are totally by accident. To go herping lfor sea snakes you need some pretty special equipment and to get to places like Ashmore Reef, which is not really within the average herper’s budget.

    Could try scuba possibly. Otherwise, in terms of this game, try an online data base like AROD or maybe one of coggers guides.
