The 33rd annual meeting of the Missouri Herpetological Association has been cancelled due to concerns about the coronavirus:

Hello MHA Members:

I hope everyone has been safe and still able to be productive in your jobs and research. After considerable discussion and meeting coronavirus guidelines, we have determined it is best to forgo the annual MHA meeting this year. The MHA newsletter will still be published this year. Therefore, please consider writing a natural history note and/or provide any county records for the MHA newsletter. Please send natural history notes and county records to Richard Daniel (

Hopefully, the virus will be substantially reduced as we plan the 2021 MHA meeting.
