The chytrid fungus Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) is the causative agent of the disease chytridiomycosis. Bsal has its origin in Eastern Asia and has accidently been introduced in Europe where it has caused the extirpation of several populations of fire salamanders in no time. This highly contagious and lethal disease threatens amphibian diversity in Europe. Vigilance is warranted.
Do you see sick or dead salamanders or newts in the field, or have you noticed a strong decrease in the number of salamanders or newts in your neighbourhood, please contact the agency in your country that can help.
