Abstract:The four eye-spotted turtle from Hainan Island has long been regarded just as a geographical population of Sacalia quadriocellata, however, recent genetic study found its distinct difference from the populations of other regions. In this study, the results of morphological and genetic analyses of genus Sacalia suggested that the four eye-spotted turtle from Hainan Island should be classified as a valid new species. Moreover, by reviewing the changes of taxonomic status and related latin name of four eye-spotted turtle from Hainan Island, it was 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.
