Abstract

Problems with the reliability of the distribution map for Emys orbicularis in the online atlas of European amphibians and reptiles (NA2RE) are highlighted. Two distinct species (E. orbicularis, E. trinacris) are lumped together there. For E. orbicularis, many regions are included into the native distribution range where the species does not occur naturally. On the contrary, records are missing for vast parts of the native range. Using data from the NA2RE atlas cannot be recommended presently, especially not for species distribution modelling.
