Abstract

The Lesser Antillean whistling frog Eleutherodactylus johnstonei (Fig. 1.) may have originated on Saint Lucia or one of the other Antillean islands Hedges et al. 2010). It has expanded well beyond its original range, probably aided by human agency, to occupy most Caribbean islands, Bermuda and some of Central and South America.
