Description:

Patterns in the distribution of Southern African Terrestrial Tortoises (Cryptodira: Testudinidae).

Summary / Notes:

Distribution maps for the ten southern African species of land tortoise have been prepared using published sources and recent museum records. Three hundred and thirty-six new records have been added to these maps by a recent Cape Province tortoise survey, and a further 65 of the older records have been re-confirmed. A relatively clear picture of the range of each species is now available, although the records in South West Africa are not yet adequate enough to resolve the problems posed by the vague localities published at the beginning of the century. The Cape Province of South Africa clearly stands out as the world's richest area in terrestrial testudinids. Keywords: Areolatus, Boulengeri, Cape Province, Chelonians, Chersina angulata, Distribution maps, Femoralis, Geographical distribution, Hingeback tortoise, Homopus, Kinixys belliana, Land tortoise, Signatus and Terrestrial testudinids.
