Title:Notes on Illinois Reptiles and Amphibians, Including Several Species Not Before Recorded from the Northern States
Author(s):Garman, H.
Subject(s):Illinois Reptiles
Illinois Amphibians
New species
Central Illinois prairies
Abstract:Emys meleagris, Shaw. This fine turtle was as late as 1870 rather common about water on the prairies of central Illinois. It is now very rare, only one example having been taken by me in the past six years. Chrysemys belli, Gray. Very common in the sloughs of the bottom-land at Quincy. It has not been taken elsewhere in the State. Closely related to C. marginata, but I have not seen in many hundred painted turtles examined during eight years' collecting, an intermediate example. The species is not included in Dr. Jordan's Manual of Vertebrates of the Northern United States.
