Etymology“The specific name wilsoni honors our friend and colleague Larry David Wilson, who is one of the leading authorities of the Honduran herpetofauna. Since the 1960s, Larry has been working on the taxonomy, zoogeography, and conservation of the amphibians and reptiles of Honduras and has written numerous scientific articles and monographic treatments of its herpetofauna.” [KÖHLER et al. 2016].
