dc.description.abstract "A review of the known distributions of 23 species of reptiles and amphibians collected by J.J. Major supposedly at Guadalajara, Jalisco, indicates that the majority of the specimens came from a locality or localities on or near the coast, the state of Colima being the most likely source. Only eight of the species are known to occur at or near Guadalajara, and seven of these also occur in the coastal region. Guadalajara may be acceptable as a type locality for two species, Microhyla usta usta and Trimorphodon tau upsilon, but detailed studies of other species represented in Major's collection will reveal the need for designating new type localities"--P. 8. en_US
