The type locality of the Sicilian pond turtle Emys trinacris is here amended, and its correct name and geographicalcoordinates are provided. The locus typicus of the species lies at 1007 m a.s.l., i.e. nearly 400 m below whatpreviously thought. The updated altitudinal distribution range of the species, based on verified published localitiesonly, is between 0 and 1036 m a.s.l.
