Through the participation of nine specialists from different institutions from all over Argentina and after more than a decade from the first Red List of threatened herpetofauna proposed by Asociación Herpetológica Argentina in 2000, we assessed the conservation status of the argentine Testudines taxa, adding the new taxonomic, biological and ecological knowledge progresses made since then as well as applying methodological changes in the former assessment. As a result from the 14 turtles taxa recognized as present in Argentina, nine were included in the actual Red List under some degree of risk (three Critically Endangered, three Endangered, three Vulnerable). From the remaining ones, three were classified as Insufficiently Known and two as Not Threatened. In the classification of the three marine turtles that are frequently found in argentine coasts we adopted the IUCN (2011) Red List criteria. In relation with the former categorization, we included a new species registered in Argentina (Phrynops geoffranus, Insufficiently Known), added two synonymies, increased from one to three the species within the Vulnerable Category and decreased from three to two the Critically Endangered species number. The few changes between the two assessments of the argentine turtle´s conservation status are due to the scarcity of new scientific contributions made to the knowledge of this group in the last decade.
