Description from Wikipedia

Leiopython, formerly a monotypic genus, now comprises six species, created for the nonvenomous python species, L. albertisii, found in New Guinea. No subspecies are currently recognized. It was first described as an intermediate genus between Liasis and Nardoa. The species was named in honor of Luigi D'Albertis.

No range data available.
