|Scientific Name:||Cyclemys dentata|
|Species Authority:||(Gray, 1831)|
Emys dentata Gray, 1831
|Taxonomic Notes:||Until recently, the various forms of this species complex were thought to represent just a single species, C. dentata, but are now recognized as representing a complex of up to 5 full species: C. atripons Iverson & McCord, 1997 (KH, TH), C. dentata (BN, ID, TH, MY, SG), C. oldhamii Gray, 1863 (ID, IN, LA, MM, MY, TH), C. pulchristriata Fritz, Gaulke & Lehr, 1997 (VN), and C. tcheponensis (Bourret, 1939) (LA, TH, VN). Their conservation status has not been assessed because the taxonomy and distribution remain unclear. It is likely that some taxa will be threatened.|
