Two new species of Arrhyton are described from Cuba. Arrhyton supernum occurs in extreme eastern Cuba (Guantanamo Prov.), and is a dark species with occipital spots. It is placed in the vittatum group, which includes other moderate-sized species with relatively short tails. Arrhyton procerum occurs near Playa Gir6n (Matanzas Prov.) and is a slender species with a very long tail. It is placed in the dolichura group with other long-tailed species. The status of A. redimitum Cope is reviewed, and…

PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS AMONG WEST INDIAN XENODONTINE SNAKES (SERPENTES; COLUBRIDAE) WITH COMMENTS ON THE PHYLOGENY OF SOME MAINLAND XENODONTINES
TLDR
The evolutionary relationships of the West Indian (W. I.) xenodontine snake assemblage has been considered as either monophyletic or paraphyletic, and the most parsimonious trees from both coding methods indicated a non-monophyletics W. I. xenodonte snakes.
Molecular phylogeny, classification, and biogeography of West Indian racer snakes of the Tribe Alsophiini (Squamata, Dipsadidae, Xenodontinae)
TLDR
Divergence time estimates based on the molecular data indicate a relatively recent (~17–13 million years ago, Ma) origin for alsophiines, and support a reclassification of the species of alsophileines into seven named and three new genera.
Case 3693 Cryptodacus Hendel, 1914 (Insecta: Diptera: tephritidae): proposed suppression of Cryptodacus Gundlach, 1862 (Reptilia, Serpentes, colubridae)
TLDR
The purpose of this application is to conserve current usage of the well-established genus-group name Cryptodacus Hendel, 1914 for a genus of Neotropical fruit flies by suppression of the earlier, unused name cryptodacus Gundlach, 1862.
At the Lower Size Limit in Tetrapods: A New Diminutive Frog from Cuba (Leptodactylidae: Eleutherodactylus)
TLDR
The smallest species of anurans, representing four families, are compared to examine the effects of miniaturization on morphological and life-history traits.
Divergence Times of West Indian Amphibians and Reptiles: Insights from Albumin Immunology
TLDR
The divergence times derived from the immunological data suggest overwater dispersal as the primary mechanism for colonization of the West Indies by these terrestrial vertebrates.
