Synopsis of recent developments in venomous snake systematics, No. 3.
Wüster W., Golay P., Warrell DA.
We present recent findings in the systematics of venomous snakes, with emphasis on those which affect the nomenclature and our understanding of species limits in these animals. Changes in systematics reviewed here include particularly the genera Acanthophis, Elapsoidea, Bitis, Lachesis, Porthidium, Trimeresurus/Tropidolaemus and Vipera. Other new publications of more general interest to toxinologists are also presented.
