The status of Striped Mud Turtle (Kinosternon baurii) in Maryland is uncertain. Regional records may be released pets or part of a northward expansion. Please share any and all records of this species in Maryland.


Note three light-colored lines across its smooth carapace, though these may be inconspicuous or absent in northern part of range. Pay special attention to facial stripe pattern, especially from the eye to tip of the nose (i.e., canthal stripe).

There are 2 records in the project database.
