Abstract

We provide an updated review of the herpetofauna of the Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park including adjacent areas within the Quang Binh province, central Vietnam. Beside confi rmation of species and specifi c allocation of previously undetermined taxa, we herein add 19 species (2 Megophryidae, 1 Dicroglossidae, 2 Ranidae, 2 Rhacophoridae, 2 Geoemydidae, 1 Gekkonidae, 1 Lacertidae, 1 Scincidae, and 7 Colubridae) which were not known from the region before. For each of these we provide information about distribution, natural history and characteristic features. Meanwhile, 140 amphibian and reptile species are known from the karst forests of the Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park, representing more than 30 percent of the herpetofauna currently known for the country.
