Hicotea (Trachemys callirostris) sandboa Thu, 13 Feb 2020 18:07:25 +0000

we have listed as both a subspecies (of venusta) and as a separate species. Various authorities list it as a species or subspecies, but the RD still considers it a subspecies.

Having it as both is a Problem (or at least confusing). iNat should absolutely put it as once or the other.
I'm on team "species" but don't mind if it considers it as subspecies.

Recently, it was determined from molecular evidence that T. callirostris is part of the Trachemys venusta complex (see Vargas-Ramírez et al. 2017). The Reptile Database has already accepted the taxonomy proposed by this scientific article and it is time that INaturalist also validates it, since it is confusing that the same taxon has two different entries
