Usually, snakes contribute with a small number of species in short-term inventories. Herpetology Notes Furthermore, the abundance of some species, such as the gymnophthalmids Scriptosaura catimbau and Vanzosaura rubricaudaor the tropidurid Tropidurus cocorobensiswas remarkably high. Out of 21 amphibian species, we collected only five of them with pitfall traps as well as through active search Table 1. Rarefaction curves and richness estimators suggest that local biodiversity is still underestimated.

Vudokree All the other 16 species were collected exclusively by active search, indicating the importance of such method for this group. Probably, new species will be added to the list, mostly those pertaining to biological groups difficult to access rapidly, such as snakes. Results and Discussion We recorded 1, individuals pertaining to 37 species of reptiles 25 lizards, three amphisbaenians, 11 snakes, and one chelonian and 21 species of amphibians Table 1Figures 3 — 8. Herpetology Notes Additionally, we attempted to show the great potential of Catimbau National Park in harboring an important herpetofaunal Caatinga diversity, herpefofauna by the richest herpetofauna surveyed in a core region of the biome.
