Abstract

In alcoholic extracts from museum samples of the toads Atelopus subornatus and A. peruensis tetrodotoxin and its analogues, 4-epitetrodotoxin and 4,9-anhydrotetrodotoxin were detected by fluorometric HPLC analysis, extending the list of amphibians containing this toxin. However, the toxin was not detected in samples of Melanophryniscus stelzneri, Dendrophryniscus minutus and Oreophrynella sp.
