Abstract

We resolve a minor confusion regarding the holotype of Caecilia volcani. The animal figured in the original description is not the one from which the measurements for the description were taken. The photographs are of a paratype at the Field Museum of Natural History (FMNH 189208). The holotype has had the wrong field number associated with it and is in the collection of the University of Kansas Natural History Museum (UKMNH 203035).
