First record of Ahaetulla mycterizans (Linnaeus, 1758) (Serpentes: Colubridae) from the Lesser Sunda region, Indonesia, based on molecular and morphological identification
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses and morphological characters revealed the presence of 2 Ahaetulla species, A. mycterizans and A. prasina, in Sundaland as well as in the Lesser Sunda region, and revealed the need to initiate a survey in more detail to investigate the presence in other regions of Southeast Asia.

ON THE ECOLOGY OF THE ARRHYTHMIC EQUATORIAL GECKO CNEMASPIS KENDALLII IN SINGAPORE ( SAURIA : GEKKONINAE )
ABSTRAC1: .Brief observations on the little-known 'rock-gecko' Cnemaspis kendallii in the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore, in November-December 1999, augmented by examination of museumExpand
Description of a New Oligodon (Squamata: Colubridae) from Sulawesi, Indonesia, Including Redescriptions of O. waandersi and O. propinquus
Abstract We review the taxonomic status of Oligodon waandersi sensu lato after examining all the name-bearing types (including synonyms) and morphological evidence. Oligodon waandersi sensu strictoExpand
Squeezing water from a stone: high-throughput sequencing from a 145-year old holotype resolves (barely) a cryptic species problem in flying lizards
TLDR
It is proposed that evaporation during long-term alcohol storage and consequent water-exposure may subject older ethanol-fixed museum specimens to hydrolytic damage, which may pose an even greater challenge for sequencing efforts involving historical samples. Expand
Multilocus phylogeny of Bornean Bent-Toed Geckos (Gekkonidae: Cyrtodactylus) reveals hidden diversity, taxonomic disarray, and novel biogeographic patterns.
TLDR
This investigation of Bornean Cyrtodactylus is the most comprehensive to-date and highlights the need for expanded taxonomic sampling and suggests that knowledge of the evolutionary history, systematics, and biogeography of BORNEO is far from complete. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Sumatra´s cloud forest lizards of the genus Dendragama and status of Acanthosaura schneideri
TLDR
Comparisons among populations of montane lizards further elucidate the complex biogeographic history of Sumatra’s montane forest species and the first phylogeny of the genus Dendragama. Expand
A critical review of Hoser’s writings on draconinae, Amphibolurinae, Laudakia and uromastycinae (Squamata: Agamidae)
We analyzed four papers on agamid lizards by self-proclaimed Australian herpetologist Raymond Hoser with respect to the presentation of diagnostic characters as well as their taxonomic andExpand
The Burrowing Ecology of a Tropical Lizard (Leiolepis belliana)
Abstract Constructing burrows is energetically expensive, yet is a common trait across a broad spectrum of animals. The benefits of using burrows must therefore outweigh the costs of constructingExpand
A NEW BENT-TOED GECKO SPECIES OF THE GENUS Cyrtodactylus GRAY, 1827 (SQUAMATA : GEKKONIDAE) FROM THE WEST BALI NATIONAL PARK, BALI, INDONESIA
A new bent-toed gecko species of the genus Cyrtodactylus is described herein from West Bali National Park on the island of Bali, Indonesia. The Cyrtodactylus from Bali have been recognized as C.Expand
