New paper out in PBSW!

Our manuscript redescribing Xenochrophis bellulus (Stoliczka, 1871) and detailing its taxonomic status has now been published in the Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. A lost holotype and cluttered taxonomic history has led us to designate a neotype and provide detailed morphological redescriptions based on a small series of museum specimens. We additionally delve into the taxonomic conversation of this species with hemipenial-based systematic comparisons.
