Dendrobates silverstonei, new species, is a distinctive orange-and-black or red-and-black frog discovered in the 1940s, as a consequence of road construction across the Cordillera Azul on the Amazonian flank of the Peruvian Andes. A colored photograph of a nurse frog, engaged in the dendrobatid trait of tadpole carrying, was widely promulgated in the multilingual editions of Cochran's Living Amphibians of the World, as well as in other popular works. The species is now removed from… 

1980 Taxonomy and Ecology of Dendrobates bombetes , a New Andean Poison Frog With New Skin Toxins

Differences in population structure suggest the possibility that either reproductive success or juvenile survivorship may be inversely density dependent, and three new alkaloids form at least a natural subgroup in the pumiliotoxin-A class, to which they are tentatively assigned in spite of anomalous mass spectra.

Taxonomy and Systematics of Spiny-Backed Treefrogs, Genus Osteocephalus (Amphibia: Anura: Hylidae)

A new taxonomy is proposed, securing the monophyletic species groups within Osteocephalus and Tepuihyla by rearranging and redefining the content of both genera, and a new genus, Dryaderces, is erected for the sister group of Osteecephalus.

Only three species of neotropical frogs can be stated with assurance to have been used to poison blow darts (191).

Rediscovery, redescription and identity of Pristimantis nebulosus (Henle, 1992), and description of a new terrestrial-breeding frog from montane rainforests of central Peru (Anura, Strabomantidae)

A detailed specimen-to-specimen comparison provided morphological evidence for the conspecifity of the holotype and freshly collected topotypes and justification for the description of a singleton species.

A new species of Dendrobates (Anura: Dendrobatidae) from the Amazonian lowlands in Peru

A new species of poison frog from Amazonian Peru is described, Dendrobates uakarii, sp.

Phylogenetic Systematics of Dart-Poison Frogs and Their Relatives Revisited (Anura: Dendrobatoidea)

The monophyly of the median lingual process (MLP) possessing genus Anomaloglossus is decisively refuted, with the cis- Andean species being sister to Rheobates within Aromobatidae and the trans-Andean species nested within Hyloxalinae, implying two independent origins of the structure in Dendrobatoidea.

Spatial and temporal patterns of alkaloid variation in the poison frog Oophaga pumilio in Costa Rica and Panama over 30 years.

The buccopharyngeal morphology of A. flavopicta most closely resembles that of Hyloxalus species and appears to be the result of convergent evolution.

Redescription of the Tadpole of Ameerega hahneli (Boulenger, 1884) (Anura: Dendrobatidae) with Notes on Ontogenetic Variations and Development Habitats

The combination of the morphological organization of its labial tooth row formulae and the presence of triangular marginal papillae only at the posterior labium allows the A. hahneli tadpoles to be easily distinguished from all the others species of the genus Ameerega.

A simplified table for staging anuran embryos and larvae with notes on identification

A simplified table adequate for staging "generalized" developmental series will be presented, which is original only to the extent that it is a simplification of those already in existence.
