    Hi, first time posting on the forums so apologies if I am not posting this in the right place. So recently I caught myself an Amplybygid I suspect it to be of genus Sarax of some description but would like confirmation on the species and/or if it even is Sarax. Photos attached to this post.

    Location info would be the bare minimum for any identification inquiries about animals observed or collected in the wild.
    But you are correct. Sarax.

    If Singapore, then 100% Sarax! The only other option is Charon grayi, and those look very different from the one you posted.

  5. I see well that's good to know now if only I could figure out which exact species it is. Currently I am suspecting it to be Sarax buxtoni.
