          Abstract

          We report the distribution of the Western Black-bridged Leaf Turtle, Cyclemys atripons Iverson & McCord, 1997, from Vietnam for the first time. This species was recorded on Phu Quoc Island, Kien Giang Province, southern Vietnam based on morphological and molecular evidence. This record extends the distribution of this species approximately 100 km east of the previously recorded location in Kok Kong, Cambodia. This discovery raises the recorded number of species of genus Cyclemys in Vietnam to three: C. atripons, C. oldhamii Gray, 1863, and C. pulchristriata Fritz, Gaulke & Lehr, 1997.
