Genus Nilssonia

Gray, 1872
Burmese peacock softshell turtles

Nilssonia formosa, the Burmese peacock softshell turtle, is the only species. Van Dijk (1992) has presented evidence that the genus Nilssonia is congeneric with Amyda, but unfortunately this was proposed in an unpublished Master's thesis and can not be accepted until formally published.
