Species-groups within the Australopapuan hulid frog genus Litoria Tschudi
The Australopapuan hylid frog genus Litoria Tschudi has been redefined on the basis of a suite of osteological, myological and external characters and the recognition of 37 infrageneric units of closely related species termed 'species-groups'. Expand
Osteology and Myology of the GAstric Brooding Frog Rheobatrachus silus Liem (Anura: Leptodactylidae)
The recorded data support the concept of the erection of a separate subfamily Rheobatrachinae, for the species, and the descriptions reported here are at variance with a number of features previously reported in the literature. Expand
Osteology of the Myobatrachine Frog Arenophryne rotunda Tyler (Anura: Leptodactylidae) and Comparisons with other Myobatrachine Genera
Cranial and post-cranial osteology of the headfirst-burrowing Australian myobatrachine frog, Arenophryne rotunda, are described and compared with the genera Myobatrachus, Pseudophryne, Uperoleia andExpand
Field observations on Arenophryne rotunda Tyler, a leptodactylid frog of coastal sandhills.
Captive frogs tracked their prey and picked up small items by darting the very long slender tongue at them a distance of 5 to 10 mm, and did not use their hands or lunge with the body at the prey. Expand

Ten (or possibly eleven) features are identified as being influenced by heterochrony within Uperoleia, confirming that the genus represents a highly pedomorphic lineage, four elements are influenced by heterogeneity in Crinia, but only two in Pseudophryne. Expand
