2008 and 2010 we detected 53% of the Endangered and 56% of the Critically Endangered amphibian
species that have previously been reported from the Cordillera Central of western Panama. We also
found species that have not been detected in Panama for many years and report newly discovered
populations. There is a need to create a new protected area in the Cerro Colorado area of the
Serranía de Tabasará, where we found 15% of the Endangered and Critically Endangered amphibian
species known to Panama.
Summary: During a field survey in the Sistan region of Iran in
October 2011, habitat of Eremias acutirostris was surveyed and four specimens of the
species were collected. We report a locality situated along the road from Zabol to Doost Mohammad,
near the town of Bonjar. The fragile habitat, consist of immobile sand dunes, is situated in
proximity to an industrial zone, placing this remnant population under threat of pollution and
other anthropogenic edge effects. We call the Zabol Environmental Protection Agency to act and
insure the species’ future in Iran.
