A review of morphological variation in Trimeresurus popeiorum (Serpentes: Viperidae: Crotalinae), with the description of two new species
Variation in morphological characters were investigated among 136 specimens from 44 populations of the whole range of the pitviper currently known as Trimeresurus popeiorum, finding six clusters of populations that are morphologically diagnosable, and that are here considered to represent independent lineages.

On the need to follow rigorously the Rules of the Code for the subsequent designation of a nucleospecies (type species) for a nominal genus which lacked one: the case of the nominal genus
It is shown that this role is played by Trimeresurus viridis Lacepede, 1804, a species inhabiting the Lesser Sunda Islands and Timor and, as a nomen oblitum, a senior synonym of Trimereresurus albolabris insularis Kramer, 1977, a taxon now considered a distinct species. Expand
