Range Expansion of the Exotic Eleutherodactylus johnstonei (Anura: Eleutherodactylidae) to Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago

Graham White

Abstract


Eleutherodactylus johnstonei is a small frog native to the Lesser Antilles (Murphy 1997). It was introduced to Trinidad some time prior to 1979 when it was observed by Hans Boos in lands surrounding the port in Port of Spain (Kenny 1979). It has since spread through much of the residential areas of north-west Trinidad from Chaguaramas to La Horquetta (Manickchan et al. 2011).
