We present a list of amphibian and reptile species encountered from 16–20 July 2016 in the upper drainage of Río Guázaro, Parque Nacional Santa Fé, Veraguas, Panama. We collected 10 amphibian and 10 reptile species and observed three additional amphibian and one additional reptile species. Our collected material provides the first records from Veraguas province for the amphibians Bolitoglossa schizodactyla Wake & Brame, 1966 and Diasporus aff. quidditus (Lynch, 2001), as well as for the reptiles Basiliscus plumifrons Cope, 1876, Micrurus stewarti Barbour & Amaral, 1928, and Sibon argus (Cope, 1876). Although relatively small in species and specimen numbers, our collection represents the first documented herpetological inventory on the largely unexplored Caribbean versant of Veraguas in 50 years.

|Funding||Erika und Walter Datz-Stiftung|
|Study Area Description||Panama, nothern Veraguas province. Remote Rainforest areas with rivers and streams as well as mountain areas at the continential devide of the Cordillera Central. Heavy rainfalls occured during our survey.|
|Design Description||First herpetological inventroy of nothern Veraguas since 50 years. Third noteworthy herpetological collecting event of Caribbean Northern Veraguas. Herpetological inventroy with observation, catching and preservation of species.|
The personnel involved in the project:
We searched for reptiles and amphibans during daytime and during the nigth. We caugth the animals by hand or with the aid of a snake hook. After catching the animals were photographed and then euthanized. The animals were euthanized by using a pericardial injection of T61 (Intervet International, Unterschleißheim, Germany). After euthanization we took tissue samples of the animals to get data about their genetic information.
|Study Extent||Our Study took place in the Caribbean versant of Northern Veraguas, it started at 08.5482°N, 081.0480°W and expands to 08.6531°N, 081.0337°W around the trail to Cocuyos.|
|Quality Control||We took photos of the animals in live, to ensure the documentation of the colour of the animals which differs when they are preserved. Tissue of the animals was taken by scissors which were sterilized by using the fire of a lighter.|
