Great photo! Can you add a marker to the map (click edit and drag a marker onto the Google Map and then click 'Save'). That will help people confirm your identification

Will do, I'll add it for any that aren't in the system already. Victor Acosta got me to finally start adding to the database; I'm looking forward to contributing four years worth of tropical herp work.

Nice - there sure are alot of salamanders in range there: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identotron?observation_id=120075#q=&place=12775&taxon=26911 Costa Rica has crazy diversity

That's for sure. This March we added a significant range extension to a member of the Oedipina uniformis group, and last February I came across an undescribed species of Oedipina while sampling tank bromeliads. Never a dull moment in the tropics!
