  • Abstract The genus Alsodes is the most diverse amphibian taxon of southern Andes, where a series of endemic species occur from north to south (∼33° to 48°30′S), mainly on the western slopes (Chile), with little overlap of geographic ranges. In this study, we describe a new population of Alsodes from the western slopes of the Andes (Fundo El Rosario, 36°52′S), located in a section of this mountain range where it is not clear which congeneric species inhabit. Phylogenetic analyses show that this… CONTINUE READING
