A phylogenetic hypothesis based on mitochondrial data is presented, which includes all described species and six undescribed taxa of Chiropterotriton and increases the number of species in the genus to 23, which represent a considerable component of Mexican plethodontid richness.

The regions of high diversity for bolitoglossines and over 75% of the ranges of the more threatened species could be affected by Bsal, and measures to avoid the introduction of Bsal in the Neotropics are strongly recommended.
A new terrestrial species of Chiropterotriton (Caudata: Plethodontidae) from central Mexico.
Chiropterotriton is a relatively small genus that comprises 15 species with great morphological and ecological diversity. In previous studies, molecular data provided evidence for a considerable…

It is found that desert and pine forest toad populations exhibit differences in skin bacterial community structure but show similar Bd infection levels, suggesting that several bacteria in the skin community may be offering protection from Bd infections in these A. boreas populations.

With the new data provided herein, Cerro Piedra Larga reaches 42 species of amphibians and reptiles, including two salamander species known previously only from their type localities in separate Physiographic province and the others represent an extension to their geographical known distribution.
Genetic variation of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis is linked to skin bacterial diversity in the Pacific treefrog Hyliola regilla (hypochondriaca).

The results indicate that skin-associated bacteria and Bd strains likely interact on the host skin, with consequences for microbial community structure and BD infection intensity.
