In 2018 the Parosphromenus Project was con­tacted by Aidil Mohd Shameen, who wished to con­tribute to our work by mon­i­tor­ing the par­tic­u­lar area of ‘Selan­gog For­est’ and keep us informed.

Aidil Mohd Shameen lives in this area, and is one of the local experts of the nat­ural habi­tats of not only parosphromenus species, but many other Malaysian native species.

We will upload infor­ma­tion here, as we get it, — and it serves as a quiet and citizen-​science approach, highly impor­tant way of keep­ing in touch with this par­tic­u­lar area.
