2014 - Hylarana caesari – a frog species was named after Caesar

A team of researchers led by Sathyabhama Das Biju unraveled a 150 year old taxonomic misconception about the common occurrence of Hylarana species in the Western Ghats-Sri Lanka Global Biodiversity Hotspot. Dr Biju named the Maharashtra Golden backed frog as Hylarana caesari, after my name in appreciation of my efforts towards amphibian conservation initiatives.
