Brief Summary

Read full entry

Based on new phylogenetic data, Murphy and Voris (2014) moved a number of Enhydris species to new genera. This species, Boies' Mud Snake, was segregated into Hypsiscopus. It is found from the Andaman Islands (India) and central Myanmar eastward across the Indochinese Peninsula and southern China southward into Indonesia. It is present on many, if not all, Indonesian islands and extends its distribution eastward to Sulawesi (a specimen putatively from the Moluccan Islands would extend the eastern edge of the range even farther]. Hypsiscopus plumbea and Enhydris enhydris are the only Enhydris species (sensu lato) with a widespread distribution.
