No special status Other Comments The name Bothriopsis bilineata comes from the Greek words "bothros" meaning "pit" and "-opsis" meaning "face", in reference to their facial pit organs. The epithet "bilineata" is derived from Latin. This pertains to their ventrolateral yellow stripes. Other common names noted for the pitviper are green Tommy goffi, Cobra papagaio, lora, orito, and loro machaco.

Glossary Neotropical living in the southern part of the New World. In other words, Central and South America. Epiphytes and climbing plants are also abundant. Precipitation is typically not limiting, but may be somewhat seasonal. Male sperm storage also occurs, as sperm are retained in the male epididymes in mammals for a period that can, in some cases, extend over several weeks or more, but here we use the term to refer only to sperm storage by females.
