Hi,
Could the 2 first pictures be Leptodactylus guianensis instead?
I agree the the last one seems to be a L. longirostris

Beetles - Kevers - Coléoptères / Re: Cicindela sp.

Hello Jos, welcome to GNF!

Your beetle is not a true Cicindela species, but does also belong to the tiger beetles (subfamily Cicindelinae). It appears to be some Tetracha species, maybe Tetracha (Tetracha) sobrina. There are similar species however.

From my experience, the species you found is very common in the sandy savannas around Zanderij, except possibly in the dry season. A quite beautiful species!

Cheers, Auke

We have found the Cicindela species serveral times in Suriname. All observations were close to Zanderij on sandy savanas by night. Does anyone know the indentification.

Hi Andrew,

No, I couldn't get a shot of the head pointing forward, as it didn't want to do so. If we tried to get it out, it would try and bite really hard!

Thanks for the ID!

It sure does look like it. Do you have any scale counts?

My gut for 1 is Mesoclemmys gibba. Do you have any shots of the head pointing forward? They have a much wider head than M. gibba but from this angle, it is looking gibba-like.

Number 2 is Kinosternon scorpiodes

Hello,

I stumbled upon these small snakes on Brownsberg, Suriname. Is this the same species or could this be Erythrolamprus typhlus and Erythrolamprus reginae?

Thanks,
Dick

Hello,

Two years ago I found these two water turtles. Can you help me ID?

Could 1. be Batrachemys nasuta?

Thanks,

Hello,

I found this small snake near Sintia Dam, in the centre of Suriname in 2015. Could this be Drepanoides anomalus?

Thanks,
Dick
