Hi Piastro

To my knowledge most people stick to the conservativ way of looking on the genus Geochelone, which means that carbonaria should still be considered a species in this genus.

Chelonoidis is by some considered a valid subgenus containing the species carbonaria, chilensis, denticulata, donosobarrosi and nigra.

Regards

:Hi!

:Wich name is valid? Geochelone carbonaria? Chelonoidis carbonaria? Chelonoides carbonaria?

:I've been told that Chelonoidis/Chelonoides (wich one is ok?) is a subgenera, but I see more and more people who use it.

:Thanks!
