Abstract:The four eye-spotted turtle from Hainan island has been regarded just as a geographical population of Sacalia quadriocellata for a long time, but recent genetic study found its distinct difference from other populations. Meanwhile, our morphological study of genus Sacalia coincided with the genetic results. Therefore, the four eye-spotted turtle from Hainan should be classified as a valid new species. By reviewing the change of the taxonomic status and related latin name of four eye-spotted turtle from Hainan island, we suggested that the four eye-spotted turtle from Hainan island should be named as Sacalia insulensis Adler 1962, and its Chinese name should be “Hainan four eye-spotted turtle”
