Aussie Turtle for ID Confirmation

Can anyone help?

It was taken in Brisbane. I saw another one in the city and was told that was a Brisbane Short-necked Turtle, would this be the same species?

Hi Delia,
Brisbane Short-necked Turtle Emydura macquarii is called Macquari Turtle in my book. I don't have the expertise to figure out if this is anything else but I can see, the yellow streak along the jaw which fits Macquari.

Thanks Andy. There was a sign at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens which named the one there as Brisbane Short-necked, certainly using the same scientific name as you have got.

Oh names, names.... how confusing it all gets LOL

Googling, OzAnimals.com: https://www.ozanimals.com/Reptile/Br...a/signata.html uses Emydura signata so I wonder if there are subspecies, or if Brisbane just wants that one for itself LOL
