Rhinoclemmys punctularia flammigera subsp. nov. is described from the region of confluence of the Ventuari and Orinoco rivers in southern Venezuela. The controversy on the systematic position of Rhinoclemmys punctularia diademata (Mertens) is discussed, and conservatively it is considered that Rhinoclemmys punctularia (Daudin) has three subspecies: the nominal form from eastern Venezuela, Trinidad, the three Guianas and northern Brasil; R. p. diademata (Mertens) from the Maracaibo Basin in Venezuela and Colombia ; and the new subspecies here described. Rhinoclemmys punctularia flammigera subsp. nov. seems to be more closely related to R. p. punctularia (Daudin), the other Guianan representative of the genus. Available biological information on the new subspecies is presented.
