Two frog species are unique to Municipio de Livingston, Izabal
While doing research on a species of Howler Monkey that in Guatemala is only found in Izabal (not far from Honduras) I found a list of endangered endemic species that listed two frog species that are barely known outside the Santa Cruz Mountain area of Municipio de Livingston, Izabal, Guatemala.
- Craugastor trachydermus, family Craugastoridae
- Ptychohyla santaecrucis Chinamococh stream frog, family Hylidae
So as soon as the coronavirus travel shutdown in lifted (hopefully by July), we will keep our eyes open for these two species of endangered frogs when we return to accomplish more field work in remote areas of the Municipio de Livingston.
In the meantime, Juana Lourdes Wallace Ramírez already in March 2020, found a Heliconia in Chocon Machacas that had a bright colored frog Metasesarma aubryi.
David Arrivilaga, María Alejandra Gutierrez and I photographed it (see lower down on the NEWS posts on this home page).
