A Herpetological survey of the Little Wabash River basin, Illinois, was conducted to determine the status and distribution of the group. During 2006 -2008, amphibians and reptiles were surveyed at eight wetland sites, using Visual Encounter Surveys, aquatic hoop traps, and minnow traps. A total of 12 species was found. The most abundant species found was Acris crepitans, which was found at all eight sites. No species new to the basin were encountered. The amphibian and reptile assemblage of the Little Wabash River basin is similar to those for other basins at similar latitudes within Illinois.
