Catalog of type specimens of recent Mammals : Rodentia (Sciuromorpha and Castorimorpha) in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian institution
TLDR
The type collection of Recent mammals in the Division of Mammals, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, contains 843 specimens bearing names of 820 species group taxa of Rodentia (Sciuromorpha and Castorimorpha) as of July 2011, which comprise 798 holotypes, 14 lectotypes, seven syntype series, and one neotype.
Catalog of Type Specimens of Recent Mammals: Orders Didelphimorphia through Chiroptera (excluding Rodentia) in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution
TLDR
This catalog presents an annotated list of 820 specimens bearing names of 809 species-group taxa of Didelphimorphia through Chiroptera, excluding Rodentia, as of June 2014, comprised of 788 holotypes, 26 lectotypes, 11 syntypes, and 4 neotypes.
Catalog of type specimens of recent mammals: Orders Carnivora, Perissodactyla, Artiodactyla, and Cetacea in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution
TLDR
This catalog presents an annotated list of these holdings comprising 582 holotypes; 16 lectotypes, two of which are newly designated herein; 7 syntypes (15 specimens); and 1 neotype, included are several specimens that should be in the collection but cannot be found or are now known to be in other collections and therefore are not in the database.
The dazed and confused identity of Agassiz’s land tortoise, Gopherus agassizii (Testudines, Testudinidae) with the description of a new species, and its consequences for conservation
Abstract We investigate a cornucopia of problems associated with the identity of the desert tortoise, Gopherus agassizii (Cooper). The date of publication is found to be 1861, rather than 1863. Only
Case 3463 Testudo gigantea Schweigger, 1812 (currently Geochelone (Aldabrachelys) gigantea; Reptilia, Testudines): proposed conservation of usage of the specific name by maintenance of a designated neotype, and suppression of Testudo dussumieri Gray, 1831 (currently Dipsochelys dussumieri)

    The Bulletin of Zoological Nomenclature
  • 2009
TLDR
It is proposed that the neotype designation of 2006 be affirmed and that T. dussumieri Gray, 1831 for the Aldabra tortoise be suppressed, for the sake of nomenclatural universality and stability.
Catalog of Type Specimens of Recent Mammals: Rodentia (Myomorpha, Anomaluromorpha, and Hystricomorpha) in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution
TLDR
This catalog presents an annotated list of these holdings comprised of 905 holotypes, 16 lectotypes, 8 syntypes (48 specimens), and 2 neotypes and includes 44 specimens that are part of syntype series that should be in the collection but cannot be found or are now known to be in other collections.
Comparative mitogenomic and phylogenetic analysis of Apalone spinifera and Apalone ferox (Testudines: Trionychidae)
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees constructed by 13 PCGs show a clear phylogenetic relationship of the soft-shell turtles and suggest that AS is a sister species to AF of the genus Apalone, and shows a usage preference in terms of nucleotides, codons and amino acids.

The known type specimens of characiform fishes in the collections of the Division of Fishes of the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, published through 1990 are listed.
Revision of the West Indian emydid turtles (Testudines). American Museum novitates ; ; no. 2918.
TLDR
Phylogenetic evidence suggests that the West Indian segment of Trachemys is paraphyletic and therefore does not constitute a natural taxonomic complex, and the systematics ofemydid turtles in the West Indies is analyzed.
A taxonomic reevaluation of Phrynops (Testudines: Chelidae) with the description of two new genera and a new species of Batrachemys.
TLDR
Three once recognized genera that were demoted to subgenera, and then synonymized with Phrynops, are demonstrated to warrant full recognition based on morphometric analysis, skull osteology, and mitochondrial and nuclear gene sequencing.
Data Nova Herpetologica Mexicana
During the months of June and July, 1965, a Southern Illinois University zoology field studies class consisting of R. G. Altig, E. H. Albert, R. C. Heidinger, and R. H. Maxwell accompanied the junior
A New Species of Testudo (Testudines: Testudinidae) from the Middle East, with Implications for Conservation
TLDR
A new tortoise species, occurring east of the Nile delta, and restricted today to the Negev desert (Israel) and to northern Sinai (Egypt), is described and a new lectotype is designated.
New Chinese turtles: endangered or invalid? A reassessment of two species using mitochondrial DNA, allozyme electrophoresis and known‐locality specimens
TLDR
The phylogenetic and taxonomic validity of two new species of geoemydid turtles from China are tested and the available evidence is consistent with the hypothesis that the specimens represent polyphyletic, intergeneric hybrids.
A NEW SPECIES OF THE TURTLE GENUS CUORA (TESTUDOFORMES: TESTUDINIDAE)
TLDR
This new species is similar to Cuara yunnanensis but differs from the latter in having the median keel not conspicuous and no lateral keels; a brown narrow band extending from behind eye to the neck; the plastron yellow, with black sutures ; and the limbs brown, without any markings.
Geographic Variation and Sexual Size Dimorphism in Mauremys mutica (Cantor, 1842) (Reptilia: Bataguridae), with Description of a New Subspecies from the Southern Ryukyus, Japan
TLDR
It is hypothesized that these dimorphic patterns evolved from the widely prevailing “larger female” condition through epigamic selection involving forcible copulatory behavior.
A new species of Cyclemys (Testudines: Bataguridae) from
TLDR
Discriminant function anal- ysis of 17 morphometric characters standardized for body size supported the distinctiveness of the new species from Cyclemys dentata, and indicated that other populations of this complex (on Borneo and in China) may also be mor- phologically distinct.
