Abstract The range of Phyllomedusa rohdei was recently extended to the state of Bahia, Brazil. Cytogenetic analysis through conventional Giemsa staining and Ag-NOR banding of P. rohdei samples from two localities in the Atlantic Rainforest, state of Bahia revealed intraspecific karyotype variation. Although all individuals showed the diploid number of 2n  =  26, variations in the karyotypic formula were observed. The greatest variation was found in the length of first chromosome pair. The Ag… Expand
Cytogenetic analysis of two species in the Phyllomedusa hypochondrialis group (Anura, Hylidae).
TLDR
Chromosomal data from this study indicate karyotypic homeology between the two groups of P. hypochondrialis species and suggest the existence of more than one taxon under the P. rohdei name. Expand
Chromosome evolution in Lophyohylini (Amphibia, Anura, Hylinae)
TLDR
It is concluded that Lophyohylini presents a complex chromosome evolution and some species showed spontaneous rearrangements, possibly as a consequence of an uncommon phenomenon in anuran cytogenetics: the presence of fragile sites or secondary constrictions not associated with NORs. Expand
Karyological study of Ololygon tripui (Lourenço, Nascimento and Pires, 2009), (Anura, Hylidae) with comments on chromosomal traits among populations
TLDR
Repetitive DNA FISH probes patterns were similar among populations, but they revealed species-specific differences when compared with other species of the genus Ololygon, suggesting that molecular cytogenetics are potentially more informative in karyologically conservative taxa. Expand
Molecular and Morphological Evidence Reveals a New Species in the Phyllomedusa hypochondrialis Group (Hylidae, Phyllomedusinae) from the Atlantic Forest of the Highlands of Southern Brazil
TLDR
Phyllomedusa rustica is apparently restricted to its type-locality, and the potential impact on the strategies applied to the conservation of the natural grassland formations found within the Brazilian Atlantic Forest biome in southern Brazil is discussed. Expand
Interstitial Telomeric Sequences (ITS) and major rDNA mapping reveal insights into the karyotypical evolution of Neotropical leaf frogs species (Phyllomedusa, Hylidae, Anura)
TLDR
It is proposed that the ITSs originated independently during the chromosomal evolution of these species and may provide important insights into the role of these repeats in vertebrate karyotype diversification. Expand
Molecular cytogenetics of nucleolar organizer regions in Phyllomedusa and Phasmahyla species (Hylidae, Phyllomedusinae): a cytotaxonomic contribution.
TLDR
This study provides the first cytogenetic analysis of Phyllomedusa bahiana and Phasmahyla spectabilis, and reports new cytogenetics data on variation in NOR numbers and positions in Phytomedusa rohdei and Phyllifiedusa nordestina using conventional staining, AgNOR-banding, and 45S rDNA fluorescence in situ hybridization.

Recurrent variation in the active NOR sites in the monkey frogs of the genus Pithecopus Cope, 1866 (Phyllomedusidae, Anura)
TLDR
The results indicate that P. palliatus, P. ayeaye, and P. megacephalus have similar karyotypes, which are typical of the genus Pithecopus, and reinforce the role of the evolutionary dynamics of the rDNA genes in karyotype diversification in this group. Expand
Recurrent variation in the active NOR sites in the monkey frogs of the genus Pithecopus Cope, 1866 (Phyllomedusidae, Anura)
Treefrogs of the genus Pithecopus Cope, 1866 exhibit expressive chromosomal homogeneity which contrasts with a high variation frequency of the nucleolus organizer region (NOR) related to the group.Expand
Evaluation of the taxonomic status of populations assigned to Phyllomedusa hypochondrialis (Anura, Hylidae, Phyllomedusinae) based on molecular, chromosomal, and morphological approach
TLDR
The results of this study support the need for a thorough revision of the phenotypic features used to discriminate P. azurea and P. hypochondrialis, and recommend the re-evaluation of the taxonomic status of the specimens from the southernmost population known in Brazil. Expand
Cytogenetic analysis of Phyllomedusa distincta Lutz, 1950 (2n = 2x = 26), P. tetraploidea Pombal and Haddad, 1992 (2n = 4x = 52), and their natural triploid hybrids (2n = 3x = 39) (Anura, Hylidae, Phyllomedusinae)
TLDR
There is strong evidence that the process of diploidisation, an essential step for stabilising the selective advantages produced by polyploidised vertebrates, is under way in distinct quartets of the tetraploid karyotype. Expand

Cytogenetic analysis of four central Amazonian species of Colostethus (Anura - Dendrobatidae) with a diploid complement of 22 chromosomes.
TLDR
Data suggest that chromosomal rearrangements and hetrochromatin-related events may have contributed to the karyotype differentiation of these Colostethus species. Expand

Karyotypic Variation in the Genus Megaelosia (Anura, Hylodinae) with the First Description of a B-Chromosome in a Leptodactylid Frog
TLDR
Some chromosome pairs, as well as the NOR-bearing secondary constriction and the large pericentromeric C-block on the short arm of chromosome 10, were consistent among the three species of Megaelosia, which differs markedly from other Hylodinae and Dendrobatidae in terms of karyotype. Expand

TLDR
Karyotypic variants: distinct patterns in the number and chromosome localization of Ag-NORs as well as in the corresponding secondary constrictions are studied in Physalaemus cuvieri. Expand

The marmoratus group may be the ancestral group in this genus and provide important evolutionary insight related to the phylogeny of several leptodactylid genera. Expand
Cytogenetics of two species of Paratelmatobius (Anura: Leptodactylidae), with phylogenetic comments.
TLDR
Comparison of the chromosomal morphology of these Paratelmatobius karyotypes showed that the P. poecilogaster karyotype is more similar to that of P. lutzii than P. cardosoi, and cytogenetic results agree with the proposed species arrangements inThe P.Cardosoi and P.Lutzii groups based on morphological and ecological data.

TLDR
Based on new chromosome data, some possibilities were evaluated for the origin of B chromosome in Hypsiboas albopunctatus, as well as the karyotypic evolution in the genus, leading to the reduction in the diploid number of 2n = 24 to 2n-= 22. Expand
