About the Species

This specimen was collected from a small cave 500 m north of Mexico Highway 120, 3.4 km west (by road) of El Madroño, Queretaro, Mexico by S.D. Busack and J.F. Lynch on 23 August 1979. It was made available to the University of Texas High-Resolution X-ray CT Facility for scanning by Dr. David Cannatella of The University of Texas at Austin and the Amphibian Tree of Life project (EF-0334952). Funding for scanning and image processing was provided by Dr. Cannatella's grant and funding for additional image processing was provided by a National Science Foundation Digital Libraries Initiative grant to Dr. Timothy Rowe of The University of Texas at Austin.
