VIPERA FUSCA - BROWN VIPER (Not a presently recognised species)
Also (Allegedly) - TRUNCHION SNAKE

WITH  ARUM - Arum maximum Aegyptiacum
AND A  SALAMANDER

This snake is entirely unknown and is probably another of Catesby's invented creatures.
 No one in his lifetime was going to undertake a six month, high risk return trip to America
in order to challenge him. He got away with it - his reputation remains intact to this day.
