Default Another new Tylototriton, T.shanorum, from Myanmar

KANTO NISHIKAWA, MASAFUMI MATSUI AND DINGQI RAO, 2014. A New Species of Tylototriton (Amphibia: Urodela: Salamandridae) from Central Myanmar. Natural History Bulletin of the Siam Society 60(1):9-22.


ABSTRACT
We describe a new species of Tylototriton from Taunggyi, Shan State, central Myanmar, based on molecular and morphological evidence. The new species, Tylototriton shanorum, is classified as a member of the subgenus Tylototriton. The species differs morphologically from all known congeners by having the combination of dull-colored markings, weakly protruding dorsolateral bony ridges on head, narrow and weakly segmented vertebral ridge, and narrow vomerine tooth series. The taxonomic relationship between T. verrucosus and T. shanjing is briefly discussed based on the molecular phylogeny obtained in this study.


This population has been included in many previous studies and has appeared closely related to Nepalese and Bengalese animals, and was otherwise believed to be the same as animals from the type locality of T.verrucosus. There is thus a cluster of separate species along the mountain ridges and river valleys where China borders on southeast Asia. The status of T.shanjing requires review, given the physical differences between shanjing, verrucosus, and pulcherrima, but the shallow genetic differences.

Thanks to Mikhail Bagaturov for alerting us to this publication [which I rarely check :P]
