Abstract :1. A summary on distinctive features of the two species of Elaphe, collected from both Okinawa proper and Yonaguni Island, is listed. 2. Though these two species are seemed to be either new species or new subspecies, this report is presented as preliminary one to study further with many more references. 3. Miyako Island was thought as the north boundary of Elaphe in the Ryukyu Islands (Amami Islands, Okinawa Islands, and Sakishima Islands inclusive), but its north boundary has been broadened now since it was found in Okinawa proper. 4. This fact assures more strongly that Elaphe distributed to the north through South China, Formosa, Sakishima Islands, and Okinawa Islands. 5. Elaphe will possibly be found in Amami Islands in the future.
