Achalinus werneri (common names: Amami odd-scaled snake, Amami Takachiho snake) is a species of snake in the family Xenodermatidae. The species is endemic to the Ryukyu Islands, Japan. No subspecies are currently recognized.
In 1996 Achalinus werneri was classified as Near Threatened on the IUCN. This is because its range is estimated to be less than 20,000 km² (7,722 sq mi), or its area of occupancy is estimated to be less than 2,000 km² (772 sq mi), and estimates indicate its range is severely fragmented, or known to exist at no more than ten locations, and that a continuing decline has been inferred, observed or projected in the area, extent and/or quality of its habitat.
