Tadpoles were abundant during declines in Costa Rica (Lips 1998). Surveys of h g s in southern Mexico in 2000 showed that 31 populations, representing 24 species, had been extirpated and 11 endemic species may have become extinct (Lips et BERGER ET AL: FUNGAL DISEASES OF AMPHIBIANS 2991 al. 2004). Riparian species of Hylidae, Centrolenidae and Eleutherodactylus above 800 m elevation were missing from relatively intact habitats. One dead and one ill frog, both with chytridiomycosis, were collected and 19% of the tadpoles from three regions had abnormal mouthparts suggestive of chytridiornycosis.
