R. Mole. Modern Work, 1926–97 Visiting and resident naturalists and zoologists continued to make collections, these being sent as usual to museums in Europe or the United States, depending on the nationality and connections of the collectors. Dr. Hans W. G. Kugler, a geologist (and E. Lehner, the man who had discovered the specimen of Dipsas, and who, through Mole, sent specimens to the United Kingdom), sent specimens to the museum in Basel, Switzerland. These specimens, representing no new records but covering eighteen species already recorded for Trinidad, were listed by Jean Roux ().

The second, differing in scalation from the well-known C. carinatus, was C. multiventris septentrionalis, perhaps the old macrophthalmus variety of C. carinatus (Mole and Urich a, ); there is no indication that Wiest searched out and found the four or more specimens sent to and identified by O. Boettger at the Senckenberg Museum in Frankfurt in the closing years of the previous century. Wiest’s dissertation has been expanded and published (Dixon et al. ), with no alterations to the conclusions about the species found on Trinidad.

Woodcock () noted that the “boa-constrictor is also native to the island” of Tobago and that “a snake is almost always found living in the nest of the leafcutting ants,” though he gives no name or description. With the influx of Prussians or Germans into Trinidad, starting with the troops commanded by Abercromby when he took Trinidad in , specimens began finding their way to museums in Germany. One particular specimen is of great importance, for it was the first record of the unique endemic snake from Tobago, described and named in  as a new species by W.
