GEOEMYDIDAE

UF 121604 View Materials (Fig. 25 in Krysko et al. 2011; MorphoBank M 88569 View Materials ) was reported as the Tropical Wood Turtle, Rhinoclemmys pulcherrima “(Linnaeus 1758)” (= Linnaei 1758), and incorrectly cited Rhodin and Carr (2009). However, J. Carr (personal communication) informed us that the family name was misspelled as “ Geomydidae ” and the correct nomenclature for this species is R. pulcherrima ( Gray 1856) (also see Rhodin et al. 2010). Rhodin and Carr (2009) should have been cited in the nomenclatural history and authority for the Spot-legged Turtle, Rhinoclemmys punctularia ( Daudin 1801) , another non-indigenous species collected in Florida ( Krysko et al. 2011).
