Abstract

We present a preliminary list of the herpetofauna in the vicinity of La Nube Biological Station, Bahuaja-Sonene N ational Park, Peru. We recorded 18 amphibian species and 15 reptile species. We add 14 species to the final list, which were not confirmed by previous studies for this area. For 2 amphibian species, Pristimantis cf. ockendeni Boulenger, 1912 and Bolitoglossa cf. altamazonica Cope, 1874, we provide a brief description for our tentative identifications. Similarly, we comment on 2 rare reptile species, Apostolepis nigroterminata Boulenger, 1896 and Epictia diaplocia Orejas-Miranda, 1969.
