Abstract

We describe a collection of 78 species of amphibians and reptiles from the Cardamom Mountains, southwestern Cambodia. One frog (Calluella guttulata), six lizards (Draco taeniopterus, Dasia olivacea, Lygosoma bowringii, Scincella melanosticta, Sphenomorphus stellatum, and Ptychozoon lionotum), and four snakes (Boiga dendrophila, B. multomaculata, Rhabdophis nigrocinctus, and Xenochrophis trianguligerus) are reported from Cambodia for the first time. Anthopogenically modified environments contain mostly species having broad geographic ranges in Southeast Asia. However, the frog and lizard faunas of intact environments in the Cardamom Mountains are largely distinct from those in the mountainous areas of eastern Cambodia.
