Viquez’s Tropical Ground Snake (Trimetopon viquezi)

Viquez’s Tropical Ground Snake was described in 1937; it is known exclusively from the type that was found in 1927 somewhere in the Siquirres District in the north-eastern part of Costa Rica.

The species has never been found since and given the fact that the type locality has severely suffered from loss of native vegetation, it might indeed be extinct.
