taxonomy revision record Oligodon joynsoni Colubridae Squamata
On the basis of a different dorsal pattern, and a low number of maxillary teeth, the specimens of Oligodon joynsoni (Smith, 1917) from the Nonggang National Nature Reserve, Guangxi, China formerly identified as O. joynsoni by several authors should be referred to the recently described species O. nagao David, Nguyen, Nguyen, Jiang, Chen, Teynié, and Ziegler, 2012. Here, we provide the first genuine record of O. joynsoni (Smith, 1917) in China based on a male specimen collected from Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China.
