  • Title
    First record of Coelognathus radiates (Boie, 1827) (Reptilia: Colubridae) from the Ananthagiri Hills, Eastern Ghats, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Copper-headed Trinket Snake Coelognathus radiatus (Boie, 1827) is a large and slender Snake. Despite its large size, aggressive nature and vast range of distribution, it is known only from few localities in India. Recent biodiversity surveys revealed sightings of this species from the Ananthagiri coffee plantations. We report the first record of Coelognathus radiatus from Ananthagiri Hills, northern part of Eastern Ghats, Andhra Pradesh, India.

  • Title
    A divergent population of Hemidactylus frenatus Duméril & Bibron, 1836 (Reptilia: Gekkonidae) from the northern Eastern Ghats, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    A population of Hemidactylus cf. frenatus Duméril & Bibron, 1836, was recorded from Tyda and its vicinity in the Ananthagiri Hills, northern Eastern Ghats, Vishakhapatnam District, Andhra Pradesh, India. Evaluation of morphometric and meristic characters supported by karyotyping revealed that populations from the Ananthagiri Hills are considerably different from other populations of H. frenatus occurring in India. We provide the detailed description of the male of this divergent population.

  • Title
    Occurrence and comparison of Jerdon’s Gecko Hemidactylus subtriedrus Jerdon 1853 with Termite Hill Gecko Hemidactylus triedrus (Daudin 1802) from Ananthagiri Hills, northern Eastern Ghats, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Recent herpetological surveys in northern Eastern Ghats of Andhra Pradesh yielded sightings of Jerdon’s Gecko Hemidactylus subtriedrus Jerdon 1853. Little is known about its distribution and taxonomic status. This species closely resembles the Termite Hill Gecko Hemidactylus triedrus (Daudin 1802) and it has often been taxonomically confused with it. Therefore, through this communication we provide information on the occurrence of Jerdon’s Gecko along with details showing the level of resemblance and differences from Termite Hill Gecko.
