Running log of additions and changes, 2019

I attempt to summarize here what work I have done on ASW starting 1 January 2018. (Previous additions and changes are in another file.) This log will not include error corrections and the like and I cannot promise that there will not be errors of omission or commission inasmuch as this log is not being constructed automatically and focuses on publications rather than on particular changes and fixes.

15 January 2019: Added comments under the relevant species found in Durango, Mexico, noting the brief accounts and range maps provided by Lemos-Espinal, Smith, and Valdes-Lares, 2019, Amph. Rept. Durango

10 January 2019: Added a comment under Leptobrachium boringii (Megophryidae), noting the publication of Li, Li, Chen, Liu, and Shen, 2019, MtDNA, Part B, 4: 265–266, who reported on the mitochondrial genome.   

10 January 2019: Added a comment under Pithecopus rohdei (Phyllomedusidae) noting the publication of Ramos, Magalhães, Marques, Baêta, Garcia, and Santos, 2019, Mol. Phylogenet. Evol., 132: 105–116, who suggested on the basis of mtDNA alone that this species is a complex of five cryptic species, of which the named population is the sister taxon of Pithecopus megacephalus, with the remaining lineages outside of that monophyletic group.

10 January 2019: Added Microhyla aurantiventris (Microhylidae), named by Nguyen, Poyarkov, Nguyen, Nguyen, Tran, Gorin, Murphy, and Nguyen, 2019, Zootaxa, 4543: 549–580, from Tram Lap Forest, Kon Von II Village, Dak Rong Commune, K’Bang District, Gia Lai Province, Vietnam. 

4 January 2019: Added Amolops sinensis Lyu, Wang, and Wang (Shimentai Nature Reserve, Guangdong", China) and Amolops yatseni Lyu, Wang, and Wang  (Mount Wugui, Zhongshan City, Guangdong, China), both named in Lyu, Huang, Wang, Li, Chen, Qi, and Wang, 2019, ZooKeys, 812: 133–156, which included a 16S mtDNA tree and map of the members of the Amolops ricketti group. 

3 January 2019: Added a comment under Pithecopus rusticus (Phyllomedusidae) noting the publication of Bastiani, Boschetti, Santos, and Lucas, 2019, Biota Neotrop., São Paulo, 19 (1: e20180570): 1–7, who described larval morphology. 

3 January 2019: Added a comment under Hyalinobatrachium fleischmanni (Centrolenidae), noting the publication of Mendoza, Bolívar-García, Vázquez-Domínguez, Ibáñez D., and Parra-Olea, 2019, PeerJ, 7 (e6115): 1–28, who reported on mtDNA phylogeography, identifying three geographic populations which, should nuDNA share the same pattern, likely will be named as species.
