Thailand: Amphibian Families Overview


Thailand


World

 

The Amphibians of Thailand are contained in three orders, divided into eight families. A total of 169 species are recorded from Thailand. As amphibian taxonomy is undergoing rapid change, with increased research and publication, taxonomy and nomenclature follow Amphbiaweb. Two useful, older, standard references for Thai amphibians are Khonsue, W. and Thirakhupt, K. (2001) A Checklist of the Amphibians of Thailand, and Tanya Chan-ard and Anantapong Poolsawasdi (2003), A Photographic Guide to Amphibians in Thailand. A complete checklist, with Thai names, citations and synonyms can be downloaded in Excel format - Thailand Amphibian Checklist.
