A new bush anole (Iguanidae, Polychrotinae, Polychrus) from the upper Marañon basin, Peru, with a redescription of Polychrus peruvianus (Noble, 1924) and additional information on Polychrus
TLDR
A new colorful species of Polychrus with a conspicuous sexual dimorphism from the dry forest of the northern portion of Región de La Libertad, Peru, which has very small dorsal scales and thus a higher number of scales around midbody and in the middorsal line.
Two New Sympatric Species of Leaf-Toed Geckos (Gekkonidae: Phyllodactylus) from the Balsas Region of the Upper Marañon Valley, Peru
TLDR
Two new species of the genus Phyllodactylus are described based on material collected in the southern portion of Departamento de Amazonas, Peru, and exhibit some similarities to other assemblages of sympatrics in South America.
A new species of Bothrops (Serpentes: Viperidae: Crotalinae) from Pampas del Heath, southeastern Peru, with comments on the systematics of the Bothrops neuwiedi species group.
TLDR
This novel species of pitviper is described from the Peruvian Pampas del Heath and increases the known diversity of the genus Bothrops and adds to the number of described taxa from the unique and scarcely known ecosystem of Pampa del Heath.
Analysis of diet composition and morphological characters of the Peruvian lizard Microlophus stolzmanni (Squamata: Tropiduridae)
TLDR
Analysis of diet composition and morphological characters of the Peruvian lizard Microlophus stolzmanni (Squamata: Tropiduridae) reveals a semi-herbivorous food generalist that also consumes animal items.
Photosynthetic electron transport is differentially affected during early stages of cultivar/race-specific interactions between potato andPhytophthora infestans
TLDR
The alterations of photosynthetic electron transport represent a rapidly detectable and sensitive physiological marker for compatible interactions in the potato/Phytophthora infestans pathosystem.
Discovery of the first Amazonian Thomasomys (Rodentia, Cricetidae, Sigmodontinae): a new species from the remote Cordilleras del Cóndor and Kutukú in Ecuador
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny based on mitochondrial genes resolved the new species a member of the “aureus” group, most closely related to Thomasomys aureus sensu stricto (genetic distance 8.57%).
The centipede genus Clinopodes
TLDR
Clinopodes is clearly distinguishable from all other geophilid lineages by a combination of features mainly in the forcipular segment, the trunk sternites and the ultimate legs.
Fifteen shades of green: The evolution of Bufotes toads revisited.
Evolutionary treasures hidden in the West Indies: Comparative osteology and visceral morphology reveals intricate miniaturization in the insular genera Mitophis Hedges, Adalsteinsson, & Branch, 2009
TLDR
The results reinforce that morphological characters are extremely valuable for leptotyphlopid systematics given their extremely conserved external morphology.
Applying n-dimensional hypervolumes for species delimitation: unexpected molecular, morphological, and ecological diversity in the Leaf-Toed Gecko Phyllodactylus reissii Peters, 1862 (Squamata:
TLDR
An integrative taxonomic approach based on morphology, molecular analyses, and climatic niche modeling was used to uncover cryptic diversity in the phyllodactylid gecko species PhyllodACTylus reissii, which seems to primarily inhabit the northern coastal region west of the Andes.
