ory in College Park made the same mistake when he examined specimens collected in 1996 and 1997 from western Panama by Karen Lips of St Lawrence University in Canton, New York.

By 1996, Nichols and Pessier had begun to doubt the protozoan diagnosis. Then an outbreak of the infection began to ravage the National Zoological Park's population of blue poison-dart frogs, Dentrobates azureus, which come from Surinam. Nichols and Pessier teamed up with Joyce Longcore, a chytrid taxonomist at the University of Maine in Orono, who described her findings to the Mycological Society of America in Puerto Rico last week.
