Abstract

We inventoried amphibians and reptiles on 5 U.S. Naval holdings located on the Kitsap and Toandos Peninsulas, western Washington. Eight amphibians, including an introduced anuran, and 4 reptiles were detected, resulting in 87 new locality records. Six species were found on the Toandos Peninsula where no previous records exist. Of the species that historically or currently occur on the Kitsap Peninsula, 1 amphibian and 3 reptiles were not detected. Aquatic funnel trapping yielded the most detections for lentic-breeding amphibians, and plastic cover-sheets were best for reptiles. Wooden coverboards were not effective for sampling amphibians or reptiles.
