Biologists have long debated the genera of closely related subfamily-mates "Chrysemys," "
" (cooters), and "Trachemys" (sliders). After 1952, some combined "
" and "Chrysemys" because of similar appearance. In 1964, based on measurements of the skull and feet, Samuel B. McDowell proposed all three genera be merged into one. However, further measurements, in 1967, contradicted this taxonomic arrangement. Also in 1967, J. Alan Holman, a paleontologist and herpetologist, pointed out that, although the three turtles were often found together in nature and had similar mating patterns, they did not crossbreed. In the 1980s, studies of turtles' cell structures, biochemistries, and parasites further indicated that "Chrysemys," "
," and "Trachemys" should remain in separate genera.
