New County Records for the Panhandle Region of Texas, USA
Authors: COREY M. FIELDER, DANIELLE K. WALKUP, WADE A. RYBERG, TOBY J. HIBBITTS
The Texas, USA panhandle is an under-represented region in regard to amphibian and reptile records (Dixon 2013). Here, we report 27 county records observed while performing driving surveys for Sistrurus tergeminus during the month of June 2019. All specimen vouchers were deposited in the Biodiversity Research and Teaching Collections, Texas A&M University (TCWC). Anuran recordings and photo vouchers were also deposited at TCWC and given a photo voucher number (TCWCPV). All identifications were verified by Travis J. LaDuc and common and scientific names follow Crother (2017). Specimens were collected under a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department permit issued to TJH (SPR-0506-662). This is publication number 1612 of the Biodiversity Research and Teaching Collections.
