This one-off issue remains a testament to the knowledge and professionalism of hobbyists in the Caudata.org community at the time. It has subsequently been cited/referenced in other media, including Tim Johnson's article on the Natural History of Cynops ensicauda popei in the late Max Sparreboom's 2014 text "Salamanders of the Old World".
