Your best bet is to get a good field guide for the region.  One with decent 
pictures is a start but it should also include information as to scalation 
(number of mid body scales, head scales, etc...).

Cheers,

Admin note:  Field guides are available at your local library or most any 
bookstore.  I also found a key to the genera of colubridae at:
