Abstract:
There is a very limited amount of data on amphibian species richness in the Piedmont physiographic province of South Carolina. Over the last 14 y, I conducted field surveys, searched the literature, and queried numerous museums and agencies to locate records of amphibians from counties that lie completely within the boundaries of the Piedmont of South Carolina. I recorded 42 species from 12 Piedmont counties in South Carolina, 7 of which are listed as species of state concern. Such baseline amphibian data is crucial to continued studies and matters of conservation.
