On the occurrence of Amphiesma bitaeniatum (Wall, 1925) in Vietnam, with preliminary remarks on the group of Amphiesma parallelum (Boulenger, 1890) (Serpentes, Colubridae, Natricinae)



On the occurrence of Amphiesma bitaeniatum (Wall, 1925) in Vietnam, with preliminary remarks on the group of Amphiesma parallelum (Boulenger, 1890) (Serpentes, Colubridae, Natricinae)



Salamandra. 20 November; 414: 167-178



A specimen of the natricine Amphiesma bitaeniatum was recently collected near Sapa, northern Vietnam. This specimen confirms the occurrence of this species in Vietnam, first mentioned by POPE in 1935 on the basis of a specimen from Mt. Fan Si Pan, subsequently overlooked by other authors. Both specimens are described and compared with other preserved specimens. Amphiesma bitaeniatum is now known from Myanmar, China, Vietnam and Thailand. This species is compared with Amphiesma parallelum and Amphiesma octolineatum. Main differences in pattern and coloration are discussed, and a key to the species similar to A. bitaeniatum is provided.
