Abstract
New information is presented on old records of four species of snakes from four different islands in Micronesia. A record of Dendrelaphis caudolineatus from Saipan is reexamined and the specimen reidentified as D. philippinensis, and a snake from Pohnpei previously recorded only as an unidentified species of Dendrelaphis is identified as D. punctulatus striolatus. We also provide supplementary data on circumstances surrounding records of a brown tree snake, Boiga irregularis, from Chuuk, and a yellow-bellied sea snake, Hydrophis platurus (Pelamis platura), from Kosrae.
