    Default Bealanana-district Uroplatus


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello all! I just wanted to share a few shots of the Uroplatus my team and I found in the Bealanana district of northern Madagascar in December 2015/January 2016.

    Uroplatus sikorae


    Uroplatus sp. Ca1 (aff. ebenaui)




    You can see these photos and others on my flickr page.

    We found about ten U. sp. Ca1, and three U. sikorae. No other species unfortunately. The good news is that it looks like U. sp. Ca1 will be the next species to be described, so that's something to look forward to. And eventually the U. sikorae-sameiti-henkeli mess after that maybe. We will see.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Your contributions are top-notch, Mark!

    Are you part of the team that will be describing Uroplatus species Ca1?

    Great news Mark!

    The Uroplatus ebenaui [Ca1] have pink/white oral mucosa pigmentation right?
    Has the Uroplatus sikorae pink/white or black oral mucosa pigmentation?
    At what altitudnal range were they found?

    All the best
