Abstract

Tasmania is usually credited with three terrestrial
and one aquatic snake. A specimen recently
forwarded to the Museum from Scamander, on the
East Coast, proves to be a typical example of the Spotted tailed
Sea Snake (Hydrus platurus). This is the first
record of this species for Tasmania.
