Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Rhabdophis. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Rhabdophis subminiatus 28827


@naydin I see you added Rhabdophis helleri - we were deviating until someone finished the work of splitting Rhabdophis subminiatus.

Please remember to check to see if we're deviating before adding species.

Since you added it, can you help split Rhabdophis helleri?
This will involve
1) narrowing the atlas for Rhabdophis subminiatus.
2) making an atlas for Rhabdophis helleri
3) either removing the sensu lato taxon range for Rhabdophis helleri with a blank one or (preferably) a narrowed one

many thanks for your help curating and happy to explain anything that might be unclear

This split also needs to incorporate Rhabdophis siamensis (and R. confusus if there are any observations of R. subminiatus from Hainan). I have added these but the atlas for R. subminiatus (S.S.) needs revision before the split can be committed.

@loarie I think the atlases are as accurate as we can get them now and the split can be committed.

OK I removed Hong Kong from the Rhabdophis subminiatus atlas which was overlapping with Rhabdophis helleri (hope thats right) and committed - thanks for sorting this out

Oops, missed Hong Kong - thanks for that.
