Current name: Indotestudo forstenii (Schlegel & Müller, 1845).
Remarks.― As can be seen in the pictures provided by Vervoort (1981) and by Hoogmoed & Crumly (1984) (actually the dorsal and ventral views are the same photos) a number of marginal scutes had already become detached from the bony carapace at that time. At the moment of writing more scutes (including costals) have become detached and parts of them are still in the container with the specimen. For further comments on this specimen see Hoogmoed & Crumly (1984) who also provide measurements.
