Both species are very similar - and although they are often regarded as Pygmy Mulga Snakes because they grew to around 5 ft long (150 -165 cm) compared to the Mulga Snake (Pseudechis australis) which may grow to twice that size in some areas.

These species are very similar to the Mulga Snake (Pseudechis australis) and should be regarded as extremely dangerously venomous. The status of these species was unclear, and has been the subject of much debate.


The genera Cannia and Pailsus have been used for "False King Brown Snakes"
