Question Is there a black king snake that is not a Mexican king?

OK folks hereís the deal:
My very first snake that I acquired was in 1998 (yes Iím old) and was a kingsnake. He was mostly solid black with a white/creamy belly and some light speckling on his sides (if I remember correctly itís been a long time and Iíd need to dig up some photos of him). At that time in my herp life I had never heard of a Mexican king snake.
Now I see them everywhere and theyíre beautiful but I donít think they necessarily look like my guy.

So my question is this: is there a king snake that looks similar to a Mexican black king but is not a Mexican black king?

I thought I had uncovered one a while back doing a Google search but canít find it now.

Iíll try to dig up some photos of my guy but theyíre pretty buried. I appreciate any and all responses.

Thank you for your time.
