Dipsadoboa cf. shrevei shrevei (Loveridge, 1932) 

Material

Mt. Mabu ( PEM R21115, juvenile 312 mm SVL + 91 mm TL; PEM R21116, juvenile, 271 mm SVL + 77 mm SVL; PEM R21122, male, 802 mm SVL + 255 mm TL; PEM R21123, male, 681 mm SVL + 243 mm TL), Mt. M’pàluwé ( PEM R21195, juvenile, 381 mm SVL + 106 mm SVL).

Comments

Specimens collected from forest floor or in low growing trees along streams (Fig. 4F). Except for Mt. M’pàluwé specimen, which was collected from low growing scrubs in the forest, far from any water. Based on the identification key provided by Spawls et al. (2002) the Mozambique species keys out as Dipsadoboa shrevei shrevei  , from which it differs on ventral and subcaudal counts. First collected in 2008 ( Timberlake et al. 2012, Bayliss et al. 2014) from Mt. Mabu.
