Allozyme analyses were conducted on samples obtained from Trachemys scripta callirostris adults harvested in the Mompos Depression of Colombia. Genetic variability was low and there was no apparent genetic structure at either the micro- or macrogeographic scale, which contrasts markedly with the results of previous studies of a Trachemys population in the southeastern United States. These results have management implications for this subspecies and also suggest the need for further studies of the population genetics and systematics of other tropical Trachemys populations.
