Title:A Synopsis of the Reptiles and Amphibians of Illinois
Author(s):Garman, H.
Subject(s):reptiles of Illinois
Amphibians of Illinois
Illinois Laboratory collection
Abstract:This synopsis is presented largely as it was written several years ago. Before a final report on our reptiles and amphibians is prepared, it is sincerely to be desired that examples of every Illinois species may be in the Illinois Laboratory collection for description, and that the local features of the fauna may be brought out by a critical comparison of Illinois specimens with collections from other parts of the United States. Specimens of the following species, and observations upon them, are especially desirable: Cistudo ornata, Chrysemys picta, Pseudemys hieroglyphica, P. concinna, Heterodon simus, Ophibolus rhombomaculatus, Nerodia sipedon var. fasciata, Rana areolata, R. sylvatica, Hyla cinerea, Desmognathus fusca, Spelerpes ruber, Amblystoma jeffersonianum and A. punctatum.
