More firsts for the database?

Post by jonathan » February 14th, 2015, 8:25 pm

With Alan St. John knocking off the Black Salamander, I was trying to think if there were any state records left for the Northwest in the NAHERP database.

This is what I could come up with as species still lacking in the database:

Tiger Salamander
Eastern Long-toed Salamander (subspecies)
Woodhouse's Toad
Northern Leopard Frog

Rocky Mountain Tailed Frog
Woodhouse's Toad

Eastern Long-toed Salamander (subspecies)
Rough-skinned Newt
Northern Pacific Treefrog
Northern Leopard Frog
Wood Frog
Woodhouse's Toad
Great Basin Spadefoot
Collared Lizard
Longnose Leopard Lizard
Side-blotched Lizard
Desert Horned Lizard
Ringneck Snake
Night Snake
Red Coachwhip

I don't think anyone's got a sea turtle either, but they're a bit rare off our coasts. ;)

There's also the chance to get a full-on state record, like when Aaron Ambos got the Greater Short-horned Lizards a couple years ago. Here are the most likely state records:

Longnose Snakes, Coachwhips, Patchnose Snakes, Zebratail Lizards, or Van Dyke's Salamanders in Oregon

Clouded Salamanders, Idaho Giants, or Cour d'Alene Salamanders in Washington

Coachwhips and probably other stuff in Idaho

I've entered a bunch of Woodhouse's toads for WA.
