New Species of Oedipina (Amphibia: Caudata) from Parque Nacional El Cusuco, Northwestern Honduras
TLDR
The new species appears most closely related to Oedopinola gephyra, a cloud forest species from north-central Honduras, in having a larger size, a jet-black coloration, a row of white flecks ventrolaterally on the body in life, and less interdigital webbing on the hind limbs.
Distributional extension for a dry forest species, Mesoscincus managuae (Dunn, 1933) (Squamata, Scincidae), on the Subhumid Caribbean versant of Honduras
TLDR
The occurrence of this species is reported on the Caribbean versant of Honduras, specifically on the Sula Plain, Deparment of Cortés, which is a subhumid habitat similar to others in the Mesoamerican region which have comparable herpetofauna assemblages.
Check List
We present new records of Ichthyophis elongatus Taylor, 1965 in West Sumatra. These records extend the known distribution of the species which was previously only known from the type locality in
FIRST RECORD OF Gonatodes albogularis DUMÉRIL & BIBRON, 1836 (SQUAMATA: SPHAERODACTYLIDAE) FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF ATLÁNTIDA, HONDURAS, WITH COMMENTS ON THE INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER LIZARDS
TLDR
The first population of Gonatodes albogularis is recorded for the Departmento de Atlántida, being the most northwestern record in Honduras and the possible origin of this species is commented on.
Phylogeography of the pitviper clade Agkistrodon: historical ecology, species status, and conservation of cantils
TLDR
The historical ecology of the New World pitviper clade Agkistrodon is investigated, with emphasis on the disjunct subspecies of the cantil, A. bilineatus, and Taylor’s cantil is elevated to species status based on phylogenetic relationships, morphological and molecular divergence, and allopatry.
Systematics and biogeography of the widespread Neotropical gekkonid genus Thecadactylus (Squamata), with the description of a new cryptic species
TLDR
The systematics of the widespread neotropical gekkonid genus Thecadactylus is investigated using a combination of morphological, morphometric and mtDNA (cytochrome b) sequence data, forming a total evidence dataset that robustly resolves meaningful and repeatable patterns of relationship.
Systematics, distribution, and bibliography of the frog Leptodactylus insularum Barbour, 1906 (Amphibia: Leptodactylidae)
TLDR
Information for the currently understood single species Leptodactylus insularum is summarized for biology, life history, systematics, nomenclature, conservation, and distribution.

BIOGEOGRAPHIC ASPECTS OF THE HERPETOFAUNA OF THE CENTRAL DEPRESSION OF CHIAPAS, MEXICO, WITH COMMENTS ON SURROUNDING AREAS
TLDR
The herpetofaunal elements found within the Central Depression are not distinct to that region but related to Gulf lowland areas of Mesoamerica and to the subhumid to semihumid Pacific versant of Mexico and northern Central America.

ABSTRACT The early and middle Tertiary land-mammal record of Mexico includes five local faunas, two faunules and four isolated occurrences that range from ?late Paleocene to late Miocene and includes

Systematics of the Rana pipiens Complex: Puzzle and Paradigm
TLDR
Study of the natural history and systematics of Rana has lagged far behind experimental laboratory studies, and the changes in interpretation of past laboratory studies have been profound.
A distributional survey of the birds of Honduras
TLDR
The history of Honduras and its literature is compared to that of Europe and the USA, which has a long and complex history of human evolution and domestication.
