Description Lissemys punctata andersoni was discovered, identified and photographically recorded with the help of the local community in Darjeeling Hills, West Bengal for the first time at an elevation of 1440 m in a small village (27.032377°N-88.355111°E) in Takdah Cantonment located in Kurseong Subdivision of District Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. This sub-species had never been reported from West Bengal, India, and Darjeeling- Sikkim Himalayas before.

The individual was later surrendered to the Forest Department of West Bengal by the local community.
