Bothrops taeniatus , the speckled forest-pitviper ,  is a species of pit viper found in the equatorial forests of South America. The specific name , taenia , is derived from the Greek word, tainia , meaning ribbon bandage or stripe, in reference to the slender body. Two subspecies are currently recognized, including the nominate subspecies described here. The body is relatively slender with a prehensile tail. The color pattern is extremely complex, varying overall from lavender gray to yellow green, while juveniles undergo considerable ontogenetic color change as they mature into adults. It is distinguished from other members of this genus by having mostly single subcaudal scales and a row of bold white spots where the dorsal and ventral scales meet.
