The herpetofauna of Nayarit, Mexico, is composed of 154 species, including 34 anurans, two salamanders, one crocodylian, 107 squamates, and 10 turtles. We detail the distribution of these species among the four physiographic regions we recognize. The number of species in these regions ranges from 34 in the Nayarit Islands to 110 in the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt. The species occupy from one to four regions (x – = 2.2). The largest number of single-region species is found in the Sierra Madre…

Rattlesnake (Crotalus spp.) distribution and diversity in Zacatecas, Mexico
The global distribution of nine rattlesnake species was analyzed and described by building species distribution models, which determined their potential distribution based on a set of ecological variables and presence records and the areas having the largest potential for the distribution of these species were defined.
A New Species of Abronia (Squamata: Anguidae) from a Protected Area in Chiapas, Mexico
A new species of the genus Abronia from the La Sepultura Biosphere Reserve in western Chiapas, México is described and tentatively assigned to the subgenus Lissabronia pending the availability of a robust, comprehensive molecular phylogeny for the genus.
Amphibians and reptiles of the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, with comparisons with adjoining states
Chihuahua is Mexico’s largest state, and its physiographic complexity affects the distribution of its herpetofauna, which falls in IUCNs least concern category and is not listed by SEMARNAT.
Climatic niche, natural history, and conservation status of the Porthole Treefrog, Charadrahyla taeniopus (Günther, 1901) (Anura: Hylidae) in Mexico
—Amphibian species of the family Hylidae exhibit a high degree of endemism in Mexico. To better understand ongoing declines of many amphibian populations, especially for endemic species that are
On the verge of extinction in Mexico today: Field observations of Ambystoma ordinarium and Ambystoma flavipiperatum with remarks on their habitat and conservation
Mexico is a hotspot of salamander diversity and harbours 18 species of the genus Ambystoma (Amphibia: Urodela) widely distributed from the Sierra Madre Occidental to the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt.
Amphibians and reptiles of the state of Durango, Mexico, with comparisons with adjoining states
The herpetofauna of Durango consists of 36 species of amphibians and 120 species of reptiles, with several taxa of particular conservation concern including eleutherodactylid frogs, eublepharid, iguanid, phrynosomatid, and xantusid lizards, boid, colubrid, and natricid snakes, and emydid and testudinid turtles.
The amphibians and reptiles of Colima, Mexico, with a summary of their conservation status
An up-to-date herpetofaunal checklist for Colima is generated, with a summary of the conservation status of Colima’s amphibian and reptiles, which contains a total of 153 species of amphibians and reptiles.
A checklist of the amphibians and reptiles of Sinaloa, Mexico with a conservation status summary and comparisons with neighboring states
The herpetofauna of Sinaloa has relatively few species of conservation concern at a global and national scale (IUCN and SEMARNAT lists), but Environmental Vulnerability Scores suggest that there might be greater conservation concerns for the SINALOA her petofauna.
A new species of leaf-toed gecko (Phyllodactylidae, Phyllodactylus) from María Cleofas Island, Nayarit, Mexico
Genomic, phylogenomic, and morphological evidence support that the new species of leaf-toed gecko from María Cleofas Island presents a unique combination of diagnostic characters, and proposed taxonomic changes within the saxatilis clade are proposed.
A new southern-most record of the Sonoran Coralsnake, Micruroides euryxanthus Kennicott, 1860, (Squamata: Elapidae) from the state of Jalisco, Mexico
A new record of Micruroides euryxanthus is presented for the state of Jalisco, in western Mexico, where the snake was found dead on a hillside covered by tropical deciduous forest with secondary vegetation.
