Walker’s Toadfish (Batrachoides walkeri)

Walker’s Toadfish was described in 1981; it is known only from the holotype that was found 1953 in the Panama Bay, Panama.

The type locality is considered to be in an eutrophic state due to ongoing pollution from agricultural- and livestock operations as well as from urban wastewaters from Panama City; Walker’s Toadfish might well be extinct now.
