This is the first report of a hybridisation between Sacalia and Mauremys (Bataguridae). New data and a review of the literature show that 19 batagurid hybridisations are documented. Many more undoubtedly exist, but have not been documented and reported. Most hybrids are members of the Cuora + Mauremys clade and 17 of 19 reported hybrids have at least one member from this clade. The Sacalia × Mauremys hybridisation reported here is only the third hybridisation between a species of the Cuora + Mauremys clade and a species outside of that clade.
Key words. Bataguridae: Mauremys, Sacalia; hybrids.
