Cistoclemmys flavomarginata has been given a variety of common names including Chinese box turtle, yellow-margined box turtle, golden-headed turtle and snake-eating turtle. Its generic status has been fluid. In his original 1863 description, John Edward Gray assigned the species to Cistoclemmys. Later workers moved it to Cyclemys in the early 20th century, and then on into the genus Cuora in the 1930’s. More recently, Roger Bour (1980) and Ren Hirayama (1983) presented extensive morphological evidence demonstrating that flavomarginata and other turtles in the Cistoclemmys clade are generically distinct from the rest of Cuora. Although criticized (McCord and Iverson, 1991), this hypothesis has never been formally disproved and the revived name Cistoclemmys flavomarginata has slowly gained in acceptance over the years (e.g. Iverson, 1985; Gaffney and Meylan, 1988).
