Lungless Frog - any new info?

This is a discussion on Lungless Frog - any new info? within the Other Anurans forums, part of the Anura: Frogs & Toads category; I was as amazed by the 2008 discovery of the lungless frog...

I haven't come across any new information on this species, and I likely would given how often I am seraching for new papers. However, there are TWO known lungless caecilians. The first was Atretochoana eiselti, which seems to live in warm water in rapids. The second is Caecilita iwokramae, a tiny burrower from Guyana.
