The western Nearctic fauna of Androprosopa Mik is revised to include twenty-five species, three of which are new to science. Descriptions of the adult males of A. apache Pivar & Moulton sp.n., A. arnaudi Pivar sp.n. and A. rainierensis Pivar & Sinclair sp.n. are presented. Redescriptions of all remaining western Nearctic species are provided, as well as genitalic illustrations and updated distribution maps for each species. A diagnostic key to males of western Nearctic species of Androprosopa is offered. Species groups based on morphology are discussed.

The amphibian fauna of Sichuan Province, China, is remarkable for the large number of species of pelobatid frogs, of which species of Oreolalax form a large portion. We have collected larvae of five species of Oreolalax on Mt. Emei, Sichuan, four of these five at a second locality 40 km from Mt. Emei, and larvae of two additional species at a locality 200 km S of Mt. Emei. These tadpoles are very similar to one another morphologically, a conclusion supported by multivariate analysis. We give diagnostic descriptions and a key for the identification of these seven larval forms. All tadpoles of Oreolalax have lotic habits, and the seven species in our study live in small to medium-sized streams (maximum width 8 m). These species show only moderate ecological segregation in terms of stream size and microhabitat type.
