Amphib. & Reptiles DB - country list: HELP

Postby Mario Schweiger » Thu Dec 06, 2012 4:51 pm

Dear all,

I have made a new feature to the Amphibians and Reptiles Database (still in test phase, but working).
At the test start page you will find now a new drop-down to search all covered countries for herps occuring there - and open the species page from there.
I know, there are many errors on the distribution !!!

Maybe you would like to help me a bit ;)
Check the list of YOUR country and post here what's missing or not occuring there, like:
Country: aaaaa
missing: abc, def, ....
not occuring: uvw, xyz.

test page: http://vipersgarden.at/cascade/index_land.php

Thanks for help!
Mario

PS: I'm leaving to Vienna tomorrow early morning, so updates will be done earliest on Sunday afternoon!

And Belgium doesn't have Pelodytes (only close to the border).

Mario, I made these lists already. They were available in MY database, when all was still milk and honey. Took quite some effort to compile and check with local experts. I think the only thing that was missing was the recent rediscovery of ursinii in Bulgaria and some crested newts popping up in more countries. I should be able to find them in the files I still have. I hope.

And Pelophylax kl. esculentus is a member of the Lacertidae :shock:

I have sent what I have to Mario. I think all of you better re-check after he has used my lists. Unfortunately, the final versions got lost, but at least they should be better than what's there now.

Lissotriton vulgaris missing for Belgium. Also ridibundus, Podarcis muralis.

Denmark is missing Triturus cristatus, Ichthyosaura alpestris, Rana arvalis, Pelophylax ridibundus, Pelobates fuscus, Hyla arborea and Anguis fragilis.

In Denmark as well, Pelophylax kl. esculentus is listed as a member of Lacertidae.

The Danish green toads are variabilis - if you acknowledge this as a species.

If you include introduced species Trachemys scripta and - if you acknowledge this as a species in its own right - Pelophylax kurtmuelleri should be added to the Danish list.

Then there's the question of the casual visitors (sea turtles), introduced species popping up more occasionally where reports of established populations are uncertain, etc.

I think the above should do, though...
