circa Jardin along upper riverbank (Rio Claro) in forested/shaded area, active during mid-day.
Please ID. Thanks.
An upcoming review likely considers this L. andesiana, but no tissues from this population have been included to my knowledge. Very different from those andesiana I have seen in Venezuela, and from Ecuadorian 'triangulum', that are apparently several species.
Date is approximate.
so-called Ranitomeya ophistomelas.
Departamento Antioquia, Colombia. Details of local witheld.
Specimen collected for deposit ICN Bogota, Colombia SA.
Date above approximate, year okay.
In NMNH collection/Kahn.
Exact data above in error, correct data with specimen.
Lauren Mitchell holding Oophaga pumilio circa la Selva Biological Station.
Egg mass with developing larvae.
"Elizabeth's Furnace" not on map.
Date above approximate.
I cannot for the life of me remember what species this is??? Ideas?
Found dead, floating in a cement collection pool where water is gravity diverted from local streams. She had apparently drowned.
Two larger tadpoles in upper left corner are unknown Hypsiboas sp. I think... Ideas? All the other tad's are Pipa parva. Neat transparent heads on those guys!
Note: This specimen had bright blue eyes. Is it H. boans?
Active in forest remnant at night.
Note blue plastic under the frog. Lot's of plastic at this site, very sad.
Note: Lead back, red back and yellow back morphs all occurred in roughly even numbers (and by the 100's) at this site. The habitat has since been destroyed by road construction.
Note: Date of day is in error. Month and year correct.
This specimen shows both pattern of the red cheek and red leg salamanders, though all found nearby were nominant shermani.
Note: 1) this is a pied pattern anomaly, and 2) the specimen was not photographed in situ, but back at truck.
