Abstract

This study confirmed the presence of Chytridiomycosis in two species of frogs found in Mts. Palay-Palay Mataas-na-Gulod Protected Landscape. Specimens were collected from the area around the DENR station. A total of 14 individuals were collected on October 2009, belonging to two species namely; Rana similis (12 individuals) and Limnonectes woodworthi (2). Toe clippings were collected and tissues were processed histopathologically and interpreted by a pathologist. R. Similis was observed to have 58% of the samples positve for Chytridiomycosis and L. woodworthii was observed to have 50% positive. The presence of chytrid infection was confirmed by the formation of zoospores within the zoosporangium in the stratum corneum of the infected frog skin.
