Still Waters Posted March 24 #1 Share Posted March 24 (IP: Staff) · The presence of the southern flying squirrel (Glaucomys volans) was documented in Honduras for the first time after 43 years. The record is from a site of the forest management plan called "Las Lechuzas," municipality of Concordia, department of Olancho. Apart from this newly confirmed location, the species has also been recorded in Zambrano, department of Francisco Morazán in 1935, in Gracias, department of Lempira, and finally in the Department of paradise in 1979. Based on these records, Honduras is considered the southernmost distribution known for this species. The discovery was possible thanks to a project of El Aserradero Sansone, a company focused on sustainable forestry activities in Honduras, and is published in a research article in Check List. https://phys.org/news/2023-03-southern-flying-squirrel-rediscovered-honduras.html https://checklist.pensoft.net/article/98612/ 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
