The MVZ collection of amphibians and reptiles contains over 270,000 catalogued specimens. As of 8 April 2004, 123 of these have been designated holotypes, three are neotypes, three are syntypes, and 1793 are paratypes and paratopotypes. Most specimens are fluid-preserved, but the collection also contains skeletal preparations, sets of amphibian eggs and larvae, and several thousand specimens that have been cleared and stained. Other special collections include pineal organs, 800 sectioned heads, a series of dried anuran skins from California and Argentina, and stomach contents that have been removed from more than 3,000 predatory reptiles.

Location RemarksCorrect coordinates to 36.96922, -116.99451 and elevation to 4860 ft [Garmin GPS map 60CSx, taken by JL Patton on 28 April 2017; precision 10 ft; datum WGS84] - Johnson (7 June 1940 field notes) wrote: "drove with Groody and Pitelka last evening down to Sarcobatus Flat, then southweard to a spring, marked by two tall green poplar trees that are visible for many miles -- the only trees in sight below the pinyons. Set traps on the gravelly, sandy bench and in washes near the spring." This spring is marked on the Bullfrog Mtn. 7.5 min USGS topo map at the above coordinates (WGS84 datum; NGS TOPO!). NPS sign identifies this as "Birdie Spring." (Reviewed by Jim Patton 6 Sep 2017)
