Range Description

Kinosternon chimalhuaca occurs along the Pacific coast of southern Mexico, from the Rio Cihuatlan north and west to the Rio San Nicolas (and possibly to the Rio Tuito). A single record exists from 21 km south of Puerto Vallarta (Pritchard, in Berry et al. 1997, Iverson and Berry 1998). There are additional extralimital records from northern Nayarit (Acaponeta) and northern Jalisco (P. Ponce pers. comm.) that require confirmation.
