CommentEmydura albertisii has been included in E. kreffti (GOODE 1967) or in E. australis (PRITCHARD 1979). GOODE (1967) also synonymized E. schultzei with Emydura (= Elseya) novaeguineae and Emydura subglobosa and Emydura albertisii with Emydura krefftii. FRITZ & BAUR (1995) report a vital hybrid between Emydura subglobosa and Elseya novaeguineae.

WELLS & WELLINGTON (1985) separated the Batten Creek and MacArthur River, Northern Territory, populations as Tropicochelymys worrelli (fide KING & BURKE 1989).
