These two species may be distinguished by the shape of the pupil of the eye. Snakes of the genus Dasypeltis have vertical pupils, whereas snakes of the genus Causus have round pupils. However, it is possible in darker areas for the vertical eyes to become round, so this is not a true : Colubridae.

The extant squamates (> known species of lizards and snakes) are one of the most diverse and conspicuous radiations of terrestrial vertebrates, but no studies have attempted to reconstruct a phylogeny for the group with large-scale taxon sampling.

Such an estimate is invaluable for comparative evolutionary studies, and to address their classification. An Dasypeltis fasciata in uska species han Colubridae nga ginhulagway ni Smith hadton An Dasypeltis fasciata in nahilalakip ha genus nga Dasypeltis, ngan familia nga Colubridae.

First there was the decision whether to include the African Burrowing Python (Calabaria reinhardtii).Although it was originally described as Eryx reinhardtii there is conflicting evidence on whether it is a erycine at all (Forstner, ; Kluge, ).
