Abstract. After years of occasional Chelodina specimens reportedly originating from East Timor, a recent field trip involving these authors has confirmed this range extension for the genus; leading here to the description of a morphologically distinct species, Chelodina timorensis sp. nov. This new species is biogeographically isolated (allopatric) from all previously known snake-necked turtle populations. A formal description and diagnosis are given herein.
