Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This is the first report of amphibian chytridiomycosis in Asia. We discovered a lethal outbreak in Japan, among 45 exotic frogs from 18 species kept for breeding by a private owner. Of these 45 frogs, 16 died and another 7 were found to be infected by chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) but survived after treatment. Bd was detected in frogs from 9 species (Lepidobatrachus laevis, Ceratophrys cornuta, C. cranwelli, C. ornata, C. calcarata, Chacophrys pierotti, Occidozyga lima, Leptodactylus pentadactylus and Plethodontohyla tuberata).
