On the basis of lepidosis, dentition, and internal morphology, the specific status of the African endemic Dipsadoboa werneri (Boulenger, 1897) and Dipsadoboa shrevei (Loveridge, 1932) is established. Sternfeld's (1910) implicit synonymization of Dipsadomorphus reticulatus Werner, 1909, with Leptodira werneri Boulenger, 1897, is considered valid. Dipsadoboa shrevei kageleri (Uthmöller, 1939) n. comb. (Crotaphopeltis hotamboeia kageleri) is considered a valid taxon, but belonging to the genus Dipsadoboa in the sense of Laurent (1951) and Rasmussen (1979). On the basis of the emarginated optic fenestra and the relatively short anterior portion of the skull, the three taxa are considered a monophyletic subgroup within Dipsadoboa.
