Crocodylus novaeguineae (New Guinea crocodile)

Synonyms: Oopholis adelynhoserae philas; Philas novaeguineae

Wikipedia Abstract

The New Guinea crocodile (Crocodylus novaeguineae) is a small species of crocodile found on the island of New Guinea where there are two geographically isolated populations to the north and south of the mountain ridge that runs along the centre of the island. At one time there were considered to be two subspecies, C. n. novaeguineae, the New Guinea crocodile native to Papua New Guinea, and C. n. mindorensis, the Philippine crocodile but the latter is now considered to be a separate species.
