    Report
    Description
    ABSTRACT Ten snake species (Ramphotyphlops braminus, Python bivittatus, Lycodon fasciatus, Lycodon aulicus, Lycodon jara, Rhabdophis subminiatus, Chrysopelea ornata, Dendrelaphis tristis, Naja naja, Trimeresurus albolabris) and two lizards (Gekko gecko and Sphenomorphus maculatus) are reported for the first time from Bhutan. With the exception of a few species, most are from the Sarpang District. Data were collected opportunistically and georeferenced.

    New records of reptiles and amphibians from Bhutan

    Report
    Description
    Abstract: Thirteen new species of anurans that include six dicroglossids (Euphlyctis cyanophlyctis, Fejervarya pierrei, F. teraiensis and F. nepalensis, from Samdrup Jongkhar, Nanorana conaensis and N. pleskei from Haa), three megophryids (Xenophrys major and X. glandulosa from Trashiyangtse, and X. minor from Mongar) and four ranids (Amolops mantzorum from Trashiyangtse, Hylarana taipehensis and Sylvirana leptoglossa from Samdrup Jongkhar and S. cf. guentheri from Mongar) and one testudine a geoemydid (Melanochelys trijuga from Sarpang), one sauria an anguid (Ophisaurus gracilis from Zhemgang) and two colubrids (Amphiesma platyceps and Dinodon gammiei both from Paro) are reported for the first time from Bhutan. Discussions have been restricted to their presence and the distribution in and outside Bhutan. As such, this paper provides the geographic locations, morphometric measurements (in some cases), time when they were seen in their habitat and information on who have collected the data of the species reported. The quality of the data is highly variable being collected opportunistically by various individuals from various places over the last six years.

  • Title
    An annotated checklist of fishes from Bhutan
    Type
    Report
    Description
    Abstract: We examined 66 species of fishes during an ichthyofaunal diversity survey of Bhutan in 2011 and provide an annotated checklist of the freshwater fish species known to occur in Bhutan. A total of 91 species are now known from Bhutan, but this is clearly a gross underestimate of the true freshwater fish diversity of the country. This highlights the need for more extensive freshwater fish surveys to be carried out in the country.
