Additions to the fauna of Caroni Swamp

Peter R. Bacon


A checklist of the fauna of Caroni Swamp was published in 1970 based on collections made by this author between 1965 and 1968 (Appendix II. The Ecology of Caroni Swamp. Trinidad; Spec. Publ. Central Statistical Office - 68 pgs.). This listed 300 animals identified to specific level and 36 to genus only, and gave notes on several groups not yet determined. Some further determinations have been made and are presented here , together with corrections to the early list which are necessary in the light of continuing taxonomic study. Corrections and additions to the list of birds are published in the adjacent article.
