|Comment||Diagnosis: In colouration Aprasia picturata is most like Aprasia smithi in having a black head but differs from it by lacking white lips and a black tip to the tail and having a rich orange-brown rather than yellowish-brown back. With five upper labials, a postocular (albeit small), 14 midbody scale rows and the first labial fused to the nasal anterior to the nostril A. picturata is most like A. rostrata. Both species also have a beaked rostral but A. rostrata is pale brown on the back.|
