Reptiles and Amphibians

Preliminary field surveys of Cerro Chucantí by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, the University of Panama, and biologists from around the World, continue to reveal the presence of unique fauna and flora, some of which are new records for the country of Panama, and several of which are undescribed species new to science. Already a new species of spider a few insects, and a couple of new plant species have been discovered at this site.
A few years ago a National Geographic Expedition lead by Dr. Andrew Crawford conducted a preliminary survey revealing a few undescribed taxa of frogs.

In 2014 a new species of Salamander (Bolitoglossa chucantiensis sp.nov.) was described and at least one undescribed frog (Diasporus sp.) and a new species of snake (Tantilla sp.) are currently under revision.
