CommentSimilar species: Kinosternon angustipons (Caribbean lowlands of Nicaragua to Panama), Kinosternon dunni (NW South America), Kinosternon herrerai.

The diagnosis of this species is a bit dubious as the measurements are not summarized graphically. There is also no (phylo-) genetic analysis of relationships to other members of the genus. 
EtymologyNamed after Professor Richard Carl Vogt, researcher of freshwater chelonians.
