Abstract

Observations on 21 species of Testudines from the Indian and Burmese subregions are discussed, including 11 terrapins, three land tortoises and seven softshells. Major range extensions are documented for Melanochelys tricarinata and M.trijuga, as well as for Aspideretes gangeticus. In other cases, small range extensions and the confirmation of overlooked records are documented and clarified. Systematic and up-to-date information on geographic distributions of Testudines in this area are very scant, and the records presented here help to fill in many zoogeographical and biological gaps.
