Smooth newts (Lissotriton vulgaris) established recently in Melbourne, Australia. Previously, the population's disease status was unknown. Samples from 34 adults and 78 larvae, collected 2011-16, were tested for two pathogens driving the global amphibian extinction crisis. The fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis was identified (6.3% quantitative PCR positive); ranaviruses were not detected.
