Abstract:   (998 Views)
Aims: In this study, more expedition work has been done to clarify distribution map of the Bungarus persicus. In addition, providing more specimens to confirm occurrence of the species.
Materials and Methods: The Persian Krait, Bungarus persicus, was described based on two specimens from Baluchistan, southeastern Iran. On 5 September 2020, collected from the Tidar region, Bashagard, Hormozgan Province, southern Iran. Also, another road killed individual, was found at the same location. Further evidences provided that indicate the local population of Bungarus persicus in southeastern Iran belongs to the Bungarus sindanus complex.
Conclusion: However, further molecular studies on Iranian Bungarus are necessary to clarify the species validity of Bungarus persicus and evaluate its similarity with the other congeners.
