A description of 3 neonate western long-nosed snakes (Rhinocheilus lecontei lecontei) that hatched from one clutch of eggs is provided. Each individual differed in color pattern. One of the neonates was striped. Standard morphometric data for the hatchlings are provided. The history of color pattern polymorphism in R. l. lecontei is discussed. A similar example of striping in another banded snake taxon is related, substantiating the taxonomic significance of reporting the second known striped specimen of R. l. lecontei.
