Ophisaurus attenuatus is found in the U.S., from central Illinois west into central Kansas
and south through eastern Texas, extending across the Mississippi into southern Florida
and up to east North Carolina and southeast Virginia. There are isolated occurences in
central Wisconsin. The two subspecies are separated by the
Mississippi, with O. a. attenuatus in the west and O. a. longicaudus in
the east (Conant and Collins, 1998).
