The recently emerged chytrid fungus \textlessem\textgreaterBatrachochytrium salamandrivorans\textless/em\textgreater (\textlessem\textgreaterBsal\textless/em\textgreater) has been hypothesized to have its origin in Asian urodelan populations, from which it may have been introduced to Europe through the trade in live urodelans.
