Abstract

The reptiles, while scarce in number of individuals and relatively scarce in number of species in the Iowa fauna, still constitute a group of considerable importance from an economic standpoint as well as zoologically. The group is very generally neglected, this possibly in part because of the almost universal prejudice and in part because of the somewhat scattered and technical nature of the literature. But little has appeared concerning the Reptilia of Iowa since the Osborn Catalogue of the Animals of Iowa and since, from a study of the material in the museum of Iowa University and from notes and studies made in the field in many parts of Iowa during the past six years, certain additional species have been noted, it has seemed desirable to present at this time a tentative list of the reptiles to be found in this state. Certain species are marked with a star to indicate that the record is more or less uncertain and information concerning these or any other members of this group will be very gratefully received by the writer.
