Paratype Hylidae

Written by DEO
PARATYPE - HYLIDAE
 
No : MZB 3866
Field number : JNCUQ HERP 4126
Species  : Litoria elkeae Günther & Richards, 2000
Family  : Hylidae
Status   : Paratype
Location  :
  • Siewa about 100 Km of Nabire, West Papua, Irian Jaya, Indonesia (Paratype catalog).
  • This species is known from two localities in north-central Papua, Indonesia, and presumably occurs in the extensive suitable habitat in this region. Current records are from below 300m asl (IUCN 2009. IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Version 2009.1. <www.iucnredlist.org>. Downloaded on 23 June 2009).
Habitat  : It lives in lowland rainforest, including in degraded and disturbed habitats (it has been found in an area that had been very heavily logged), where it breeds in temporary and permanent swamps and pools (IUCN 2009. IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Version 2009.1. <www.iucnredlist.org>. Downloaded on 23 June 2009).

No : MZB 11823
Field number : JCUNQ HERP 5822
Species  : Litoria richardsi Dennis & Cunningham, 2006
Family  : Hylidae
Status   : Paratype
Location  :
  • Tiri Camp 4,5 km  south west Dabra, Mambermo Basin, Papua (Paratype catalog).
  • This species is known from two sites in New Guinea: 5.5 km west of Tabubil township, in Western Province, Papua New Guinea (5°17’30”S and 141°11’55”E;) at 500m asl; and adjacent to the Tiri River, Mamberamo Drainage, in Papua Province, Indonesia (3°17’30”S, 138°34’53”) at 80m asl. It is expected to occur more widely, especially in suitable habitat in intervening areas (IUCN 2009. IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Version 2009.1. <www.iucnredlist.org>. Downloaded on 23 June 2009).
Habitat  : This species is likely to be a canopy dweller and may glide given its extensively webbed fingers and toes. It has been found in lowland rainforest in areas of very high rainfall. It is presumed to breed by larval development, and may lay eggs in swamps or ponds on the forest floor, and/or in small canopy ponds (those trapped in tree forks and hollows and regularly replenished by high rainfall) (IUCN 2009. IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Version 2009.1. <www.iucnredlist.org>. Downloaded on 23 June 2009).

Field number : JNCUQ HERP 4373
Species  : Litoria eurynastes menzies Menzies, Richards, Tyler, 2008
Family  : Hylidae
Status   : Paratype
Location  :
  • Siewa Base camp, Papua Province (Paratype catalog).
  • Lowlands of northern New Guinea from Alexishafen to the east coast of Cenderawasih Bay (Siewa River), Seram and Manus Island. The referred material from Aitape, 480 km beyond Alexishafen, is in poor condition and cannot be compared in detail but we include it in this species on account of the large size and intermediate geographic position between Alexishafen and Sentani. Material from the Sentani area, 220 km beyond Aitape (Menzies et al., 2008).
Habitat  : The Alexishafen series was collected by a small pond (probably a war-time bomb crater) in a coconut plantation where the males were calling from tall grass. Those from Frieda River were calling from a shallow grassy pond near the river, together with two Rana species. No information is available for the Aitape or Sentani specimens. All of the specimens from Siewa were perched in tall grass and low bushes around shallow artificial ponds in highly degraded rainforest. Manus Island frogs were found among low vegetation next to roadside ditches and small ponds on the outskirts of Lorengau Town. None was found or heard in primary rainforest inland of Lorengau. The Seram sample was collected from flooded ditches beside logging tracks through recently logged lowland forest (Menzies et al., 2008).
