Remarks :
We described Cylindrophis mirzae from Singapore and it is restricted to Peninsular Malaysia and probably sympatric with Cylindrophis ruffus.

Etymology:
The species epithet is an eponym latinized as a noun in the genitive singular, honouring Dr. Mirza Kusrini for her generous friendship and support, for her dedication and important contributions to herpetological conservation and ecology in Indonesia. Mirza Kusrini is an Indonesian herpetologist and currently she is a lecturer at Bogor Agricultural University, Indonesia and a steering committee member of IUCN Species Survival Commission Amphibian Specialist Group.

English name: Mirza's Pipe Snake
