Boinae

The Boinae are a subfamily of boas found in Central and South America, Africa and Southeast Asia. Five genera comprising 28 species are currently recognized.[2]

Geographic range[edit]

Found in Central and South America, Africa, Reunion Island, Mauritius, the Maluku Islands and New Guinea.[1]

Genera[edit]

Its range in South America includes Pacific Colombia and Ecuador, as well as the Amazon Basin from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and northern Bolivia through Brazil to Venezuela, Isla Margarita, Trinidad, Tobago, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana. In the West Indies it is found on St. Vincent, the Grenadines (Bequia Island, Ile Quatre, Baliceaux, Mustique, Canouan, Maryeau, Union Island, Petit Martinique and Carriacou), Grenada and the Windward Islands (Lesser Antilles).

Taxonomy[edit]

The genera Acrantophis and Sanzinia were erroneously synonymized with the genus Boa by Kluge in 1991.[3] These have now been transferred to the resurrected subfamily Sanziniinae.[4][5] The genus Candoia has similarly been transferred to its own subfamily, Candoiinae.[5]
