Philippine Cat Snake (English)
Ecology and Distribution
Luzon Island, Philippines; type stored in the Naturhistorisches Museum Wien, Austria; NMW 23401.
This species has been documented to occur on Luzon Island. However, field-based identifications for Boiga cynodon, Boiga angulata, and Boiga philippina are often confused, and future research should focus on investigating species boundaries for these three species in the Philippines.
