A fossil snake from the San tee local fauna was collected in August 1979 by J. Alan Holman, Raymond A. Holman, and Michael R. Voorhies. The Santee local fauna (University of Nebraska State Museum Locality Kx-111) is exposed in a road cut on the south side of the Lewis and Clark Reservoir of the Missouri River, 17.7 km ENE of the junction of the Niobrara and Missouri rivers, Knox County, Nebraska, at Latitude 42° 49' N, 97° 50' W. The matrix of this locality consists of an ash that fell on the area about 4.5 m.y.B.P. during the latter part of the Hemphillian land mammal age.
