Freshwater turtles belong to the most popular pets and are often introduced outside their native range. Some species are highly invasive and may compete with native species. Three Mauremys species are naturally distributed in the Mediterranean region, but none is native to Italy. In this work we summarize records of Mauremys spp. in Italy. Records exist for 9 regions, but there are no verified breeding records. Reproduction could have happened in southern Tuscany for M. leprosa.
