Comprehensive Description

Read full entry


Discoglossus pictus is found in the western Mediterranean Basin, on sandy coastal areas or in Mediterranean woodlands. Its morphology features characteristic dorsolateral folds and an inconspicuous tympanum. The species breeds in lentic freshwater marshes or brackish coastal marshes. Although the present species population is considered secure, there is a steady reduction in habitat from urbanization and from extraction of water resources for human use.
