Testudinidae The paper reports 23 turtle species so far recorded from Northeast region (NER) of India, belonging to 3 families namely Geoemydidae (15 species), Trionychidae (6 species) and Testudinidae (2 species). The freshwater turtle population is declining due to wanton killing and destruction of their natural habitat. Out of 23 species found in NER, 6 species namely Pangshura sylhetensis, Pyxidea mouhotii, Nilssonia nigricans, Chitra indicia, Manouria emys and Indotestudo elongata are listed by IUCN as the most endangered species of Asia. Chitra indica is on the new list of the 25 most endangered turtle species of the world.
