Werner C. A. Bokermann frog collection at Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de Sao Paulo (MZUSP). The reports sent by Dr. P. E. Vanzolini were intended to serve as a rough draft of a publication on the amphibian collection assembled by Bokermann and sold to the MZUSP by Bokermann's sons after Bokermann died. Vanzolini did not prepare a manuscript for publication and the materials in this folder pertain to some exchange specimens and the materials may be the only source of information.
