Terrapene putnami Hay, 1906 (Reptilia, Testudines, emydidae): a neotype designated
Abstract

Under the plenary power the Commission has conserved the current usage of the name Terrapene putnami Hay, 1906 by replacing a nondiagnostic holotype (a fragment of a left hypoplastron) that was collected from a temporally mixed locality, with a more complete specimen comprised of the carapace, plastron, and associated non-shell postcrania from a nearby locality of late Pleistocene age. All type fixations for Terrapene putnami have been set aside and a firmly dated late Pleistocene neotype has been designated.
