Morphological characterization of the anuran integument of the Proceratophrys and Odontophrynus genera (Amphibia, Anuran, Leptodactylidae).
A NEW SPECIES OF PHYSALAEMUS FITZINGER, 1826 FROM THE LOWLAND ATLANTIC FOREST OF RIO DE JANEIRO STATE, BRAZIL (AMPHIBIA, ANURA, LEPTODACTYLIDAE) 1
The advertisement call of P. angrensis is described and its main acoustic properties are compared to those of other species in the P. signifer group, especially P. moreirae, which has a similar call.
A new species of Dendrophryniscus Jiménez–de–la–Espada from the Parque Nacional da Serra dos Órgãos, Teresópolis, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Amphibia, Anura, Bufonidae)
The large size of the oocytes suggest that the new species reproduces in bromeliads, which places thenew species in the D. brevipollicatus group together with D. berthalutzae, D. krausae, and D. stawiarskyi.
Taxonomic status and redescription of Flectonotus ulei (Anura: Hemiphractidae), with a key for the species of Fritziana
Analysis of osteological characters and brood pouch structure confirms that F. ulei belongs to Fritziana, and is resurrected from its synonymy with Flectonotus fissilis and is redescribed.

It is suggested that Bd is likely spread during the summer, when most anuran species gather near the water for spawning and when rainfall overfills ephemeral wetlands, and during the drier months, a higher infection burden may be explained by increased disease susceptibility.
The tadpole of Proceratophrys izecksohni (Amphibia: Anura: Odontophrynidae)
The external morphology of the tadpole of Proceratophrys izecksohni is described, its internal oral features, and chondrocranial anatomy, based on specimens collected at the type locality.
The tadpole of Physalaemus soaresi Izecksohn, 1965 (Anura: Leptodactylidae), with comments on taxonomy, reproductive behavior, and vocalizations
The tadpole of Physalaemus soaresi is described and notes on its reproductive behavior are presented and the advertisement call is compared with the call of P. olfersii.
Distribution extension of Scinax hiemalis (Haddad and Pombal, 1987) and new state record from Rio de Janeiro, southeastern Brazil (Amphibia: Anura: Hylidae)
This is the first record of Scinax hiemalis outside the state of Sao Paulo, and the new locality at Teresopolis municipality, is 412 km away from to the type locality and 290km away from Sao Sebastiao, the closest record.
ANURAN FAUNA OF THE HIGH-ELEVATION AREAS OF THE PARQUE NACIONAL DA SERRA DOS ÓRGÃOS (PARNASO), SOUTHEASTERN BRAZIL
Three species are added to the list of anurans endemic to the high-elevation areas of Serra dos Orgaos ( Cycloramphus organensis, D. organensis , and Fritziana sp. nov.), raising to 14 the number of endemic taxa in the area.
