Camiguin Sur amphibians and reptiles biodiversity Conservation
The Philippines is listed as one of the world’s megadiverse countries despite its small size. Conversely, it is also on the list of global biodiversity conservation hotspots. With the threat of extinction at an all-time high, better understanding of the archipelago’s biodiversity will provide invaluable baseline information for proper conservation efforts. Here we provide an updated checklist on the herpetological biodiversity of Camiguin Sur, Misamis Oriental, Mindanao, Philippines. Field surveys and specimen collection from the municipality of Mambajao resulted in a total of 28 species (13 anurans, 11 lizards, and four snakes) – all well represented by voucher specimens. Our data provides seven additional species records, updating the island’s total amphibian and reptile species count to 57, with about half Philippine-endemic. Included in the new records are three invasive alien species of amphibians: The Cane Toad Rhinella marina, the Greenhouse Frog Eleutherodactylus planirostris, and the Asiatic Painted Narrowmouth Toad Kaloula pulchra.
