Summary:Between 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
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.

Summary: Iran is located in an area that is bordered by several
mountains and contains herpetofaunal constituents from
adjacent countries such as Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Turkey.
We surveyed several border provinces of Iran to more completely
understand the Iranian herpetofauna. During one survey in the
northwestern part of Iran we found a species of the genus Eremias that can be added to Iran’s
herpetofauna. Previously, the distribution of Eremias suphani was limited to
the Van Lake in Turkey (type locality). We compared Iranian samples
with E. suphani from Turkey
using a molecular marker (Cytochrome b) and confirmed that this species
is also present in Iran. The new record of this species
is located on the road from Firoragh to Chaldoran in the west of the
province of Azarbaijan, Iran.
