Spain-turtle, frog and lizard

Postby Petr Sramek » Thu Oct 31, 2019 8:04 am

Hi,

could you, please, help me with the identification of these three species from Spain? They all come from Valencia, obviously, a turtle is some introduced species.

I have my guesses but I am not sure.

Thank you for your help!

Petr

Hi Petr,
The lizard is Psammodromus edwarsianus and the frog is Pelophylax perezi. The terrapin is one of the introduced species as you suggest, not sure which one though.

the terrapin looks like one of the Trachemys/Pseudemys complexes. As far as I see the head/neck markings maybe a P. floridana

The turtle ID is rather difficult. I agree with Mario that it might be Pseudemys floridana but I would not exclude Trachemys scripta scripta similar to this https://www.f1online.de/en/image-details/3767041.html

It seems to me that in adult Pseudemys the carapace is higher/more domed and somewhat smoother than the individual in the photo.

Thank you both for narrowing down my search!

I keep on with that and do my ID homework :)
