: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.

::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!
