Range extension of Crotaphopeltis hotamboeia (Laurenti, 1768) in Namibia
Keywords:Crotaphopeltis hotamboeia, range extension, Namibia
While Namibia has a high diversity of reptiles (Herrmann & Branch 2013), it is deficient in records for most reptile species, and several distributions are still poorly understood. We extend the known range for Crotaphopeltis hotamboeia by more than 700 km southwest from the nearest published Namibian record, and more than 150 km southeast from the nearest recorded museum record. This represents one of the most arid records for the species.
