DE LA TORRE, J. Antonio et al. New record of sheep frog (Hypopachus variolosus) in the Tres Marías Islands archipelago, Nayarit, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2010, vol.81, n.2, pp. 581-582. ISSN 1870-3453.
During a recent visit to María Madre Island, in the Tres Marías Island archipelago, 2 specimens of Hypopachus variolosus were found. This new record of the sheep frog from Tres Marías Island archipelago represents the first island record for this species. Due to the uncertainty about its conservation status in this locality, we consider necessary to improve the information about this species in the island.
