Species novae Testudinum (“A New Species of Turtles”) is a scientific monograph on the turtles of Brazil, written by the German naturalist Johann Baptist von Spix and published in 1838. The book describes and illustrates several new species of turtles that Spix discovered during his travels in Brazil in the early 19th century.

Johann Baptist von Spix was a zoologist and explorer who led a scientific expedition to Brazil in 1817-1820. During this expedition, he collected numerous specimens of animals, plants, and minerals, which he brought back to Europe for study. In Species novae Testudinum, Spix focused specifically on the turtles he encountered during his travels.

The work is considered an important contribution to the field of herpetology, as it helped to expand scientific knowledge of the diversity of turtles in South America. It was also notable for its use of lithography, which allowed for high-quality reproductions of the illustrations to be produced.
