Abstract

The Sierra Madre del Sur (SMS) of southern Mexico is known for its exceptionally high levels of amphibian endemism, but knowledge of species’ ranges in the region is incomplete. Here, we report new locality records for Eleutherodactylus syristes (Hoyt, 1965) from the states of Oaxaca and Guerrero. Previously, this species was known only from the Pacific slopes of the Sierra de Miahuatlán and Mixteca Alta in Oaxaca. These new occurrence records extend the known range of this species by approximately 335 km from the type locality and increase the elevational range, indicating it is more widespread in the SMS. Eleutherodactylus syristes is currently listed as endangered by the IUCN based on its limited distribution and ongoing threats to its persistence.
