Abstract     
Abstract: European pond turtle Emys orbicularis is the extremely rare species in herpetofauna of Latvia, information about their findings in Latvia is scanty, some of which are insufficient or outdated. There were contradictory opinions about the possibility of Emys orbicularis population existence in Latvia. In connection with this the authors conducted the study of the Emys orbicularis distribution in Latvia over a period of time from 1982 till 2007. The primary method of the study was the interview of inhabitants about findings of European pond turtle. In the present article the precise and complete data about coordinates of findings of Emys orbicularis in Latvia, obtained in the period from 1982 till 2007, are published for the first time. Altogether 85 cases of finding of Emys orbicularis were registered in Latvia, for each finding the coordinates were fixed and its plausibility was determined. On the basis of the study the map of the distribution of Emys orbicularis in Latvia is compiled. Key words: distribution, Emys orbicularis, Latvia.
