Notes. This species was described from Trachemys scripta  in Arkansas and Mississippi USA by Fisher (1960). Later this species was recorded in several localities of North America (Barger 2004). In Mexico the first record of N. (N.) emyditoides  was made by Bravo-Hollis in 1946, however it was described as N. (N.) emydis  . Later Barger (2004), Barger et al. (2004), mentioned that N. (N.) emydis  is restricted the eastern half of the upper Mississippi river.
