Serpens is a particularly annoying constellation for people like me who try to catagorize them. Although it is officially one constellation, it is actually split into two distinct, disjoint areas of the sky which are divided by the constellation Ophiuchus. They are named Serpens Caput and Serpens Cauda, or, in jargon terms, Ser1 and Ser2.
