What? Coachwhips were placed in Masticophis in 1938 and have been there my whole life until recently when they were moved to Coluber in papers by Utiger (2005) and Liner (2007). Collins and Taggart (2009)put them back in Masticophis, but that was mostly ignored. Were they recently moved back to Masticophis by another taxonomic study?

Check http://www.reptile-database.org/db-info/news.html "Notably, we moved the North American species of Coluber back to Masticophis (following Myers et al. 2017) "
