We are looking for photos of species that are missing from the current TTWG Checklist and Atlas of Turtles of the World.

Do any of you have photos of any of the following 17 taxa that you would be willing to have us consider for inclusion in the next edition of the Checklist (hopefully to be published by the end of the year)?

Emydidae: Trachemys stejnegeri malonei, Trachemys venusta panamensis, Trachemys venusta uhrigi

Geoemydidae: Rhinoclemmys punctularia flammigera

Testudinidae: Testudo horsfieldii horsfieldii, Testudo horsfieldii bogdanovi, Testudo horsfieldii kuznetzovi

Trionychidae: Chitra chitra javanensis, Pelodiscus axenaria, Pelodiscus parviformis

Chelidae: Platemys platycephala melanonota, Chelodina gunaleni, Chelodina mccordi roteensis

Pelomedusidae: Pelomedusa kobe, Pelomedusa schweinfurthi, Pelusios williamsi laurenti, and Pelusios williamsi lutescens.

Thank you for any help.

Hope it is not to late. This is a 20 year old male testudo horsfieldii horsfieldii. If need more specific photos reply.
This was requested in 2019 and the pictures were to be sent to the email address at the end of the post.
