Holotype: MNHMP 3915 Golay et al., 1993, Endogly. Venom. Snakes World 478pp.[175]

Type-locality: Col. rio-sucio ou Senio: Roze, 1967, Am. Mus. Novit. 2287:1-60[36], suggested that this might be Sinú, Colombia.

Until recently M. multifasciatus and M. hertwigi often have been placed in the synonymy of M. mipartitus (e.g., Roze In Peters and Orejas-Miranda, 1970, Bulls. U.S. Natl. Mus. 297(1):1-347[214].) Four subspecies were recognized by Roze, 1983 [dated 1982], and Campbell and Lamar, 1989, Venom. Rept. Latin America: 425pp.[132]. These subspecies are M. m. mipartitus (Duméril, Bibron, and Duméril 1854), M. m. anomalus (Boulenger, 1896), M. m. decussatus (Duméril, Bibron, and Duméril, 1854), M. m. semipartitus (Jan, 1858).
