  • date of photo  Apr 24, 1982
  • this photo depicts an animal that was captive or collected
  • photo location   S. C. de Bariloche, Argentina
  • animal's place of origin   Laguna Blanca (Departamento Zapala, Neuquén Province, Argentina)
  • family Batrachylidae
  • order Anura
  • class Amphibia
  • habitat  Highly aquatic, formerly very abundant, hiding under rocks close to the shore. This lake is located on a volcanic mesa.
  • notes   This is an adult female, 40 mm svl. The population in Laguna Blanca is now extinct, almost certainly because of the introduction of a large predatory fish (Perichythys colahuapiensis) in 1965. This animal is one of the last ones collected from the lake, as they have not been found since then despite intensive searching. The same species continues to live in nearby lakes where there are no fish.
