Miscellanea Herpetologica Gabonica XV

Bulletin of the Chicago Herpetological Society, 55(3):54-60.

We present new Gabonese locality records, ecological and morphological data and unpublished material for Pelusios gabonensis (Pelomedusidae), Kinixys erosa (Testudinidae), Hemidactylus mabouia (Gekkonidae), Lepidothyris striatus, Trachylepis affinis (Scincidae), Crotaphopeltis hotamboeia, Dipsadoboa underwoodi and D. viridis (Colubridae), Dendroaspis jamesoni, Naja annulata annulata, N. melanoleuca and N. nigricollis (Elapidae), Atractaspis boulengeri, Limaformosa savorgnani, Polemon fulvicollis, Psammophis mossambicus (Lamprophiidae) and Natriciteres fuliginoides (Natricidae). One skink and two snake species are newly recorded from Haut-Ogooué and Ngounié provinces, respectively. We attribute all records of Psammophis spp. in Gabon to P. mossambicus. We report a case of predation by a Common chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) on Kinixys erosa in Lopé National Park, by Crotaphopeltis hotamboeia on the Cameroon toad Sclerophrys camerunensis (Anura: Bufonidae), and by a Naja annulata annulata on Thollon's robber tetra Brycinus tholloni (Characiformes: Alestidae).
