TY  - JOUR
AB - We present observations on six species of chelonians documented during herpetological surveys in Ngengpui Wildlife Sanctuary and surrounding areas in south Mizoram, North-east India. All are first reports from the area. These records help fill in distribution gaps for four species, and extend the known distribution range of two (Kachuga sylhetensis and Amyda cartilaginea). Of the latter, A. cartilaginea is reported from the Indian subcontinent for the first time. These records emphasize the need for surveys to refine the distribution mapping of testudines in North-east India, particularly in the hill states. Vernacular names of all species recorded in the present survey are provided, along with notes on their status in the area. We also discuss threats to each species, with special emphasis on the effects of shifting cultivation and consumptive use
