Gephyromantis is a monophyletic genus within the family Mantellidae that contains frogs of largely brownish coloration, which primarily inhabit the leaf litter in the rain forests of Madagascar (Glaw and Vences, 2006). Five subgenera are currently recognized (Duboimantis, Phylacomantis, Laurentomantis, Vatomantis, and Gephyromantis). However, a recent molecular study using both mitochondrial and nuclear genes revealed that the subgenus Gephyromantis is monophyletic only after exclusion of G… Expand

A distinctive new frog species (Anura, Mantellidae) supports the biogeographic linkage of two montane rainforest massifs in northern Madagascar
The biogeography of reptiles and amphibians across the massifs of northern Madagascar, the evidence for a strong link between Marojejy and Sorata, and the role of elevation in determining community sharing across this landscape are discussed. Expand


Description of two new frogs of the genus Mantidactylus from Madagascar, with notes on Mantidactylus klemmeri (Guibé, 1974) and Mantidactylus webbi (Grandison, 1953) (Amphibia, Ranidae, Mantellinae)
Two new species of the endemic Malagasy frog genus Mantidacfylus were discovered during recent fleldwork in northeastern Madagascar, and these are formally named and described in this paper. TheExpand
Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of Malagasy frogs of the genus Gephyromantis.
A reconstruction of ancestral distribution areas indicates a diversification of several subgenera in the northern biogeographic regions of Madagascar and the dispersal out of northern Madagascar for several clades. Expand
Not all little brown frogs are the same: a new species of secretive and cryptic Gephyromantis (Anura: Mantellidae) from Madagascar
We describe a new species of small diurnal frog of the genus Gephyromantis from Mahasoa, a fragment of mid-altituderainforest in the northern central east of Madagascar, located to the north east ofExpand
Phylogeny and genus-level classification of mantellid frogs (Amphibia, Anura)
A novel classification of frogs in the family Mantellidae is proposed, based on published phylogenetic information and on a new analysis of molecular data, which accounts for recent progress in the understanding of the phylogeny and natural history of these frogs. Expand
Systematic revision of the enigmatic Malagasy broad-headed frogs (Laurentomantis Dubois, 1980), and their phylogenetic position within the endemic mantellid radiation of Madagascar
A phylogenetic analysis of 54 mainly osteological and morphological characters in 33 endemic Malagasy anurans resulted in a position of Laurentomantis close to species of the subgenera Spinomantis and Gephyromantis, supporting the need of generic partitioning of the latter. Expand
Description of a new Malagasy treefrog (Boophis) occurring syntopically with its sister species, and a plea for studies on non-allopatric speciation in tropical amphibians
This work describes a new species of treefrog from Ranomafana National Park in the southern central east of Madagascar and suggests that alternative speciation scenarios should be considered in future works and characterize settings in which more reliable assessments of adaptive parapatric or sympatric speciation could be carried out. Expand
Description of a new frog species of Gephyromantis (subgenus Laurentomantis) with tibial glands from Madagascar (Amphibia, Mantellidae)
A new species of frog from Madagascar, assigned to the subgenus Laurentomantis in the genus Gephyromantis, is described by a combination of its unique life colouration, presence of tibial glands, broad head, and substantial genetic differentiation. Expand
Integrative taxonomy reveals cryptic Amazonian species of Pristimantis (Anura: Strabomantidae)
Multivariate analyses of qualitative and quantitative morphological and bioacoustic characters, and phylogenetic analyses support the hypothesis that two Bolivian Pristimantis with taxonomic problems represent different, previously unknown, cryptic lineages. Expand
Integrative taxonomy of Malagasy treefrogs: combination of molecular genetics, bioacoustics and comparative morphology reveals twelve additional species of Boophis
Ten new species of treefrogs assigned to the genus Boophis are described and two species from synonymy are resurrected based on materials collected during fieldwork in Madagascar, based on molecular, bioacoustic and morphological evidence. Expand
A New Species of Putatively Pond Breeding Frog of the Genus Guibemantis from Southeastern Madagascar
A new frog species of the genus Guibemantis in the subgenus Pandanusicola from southeastern Madagascar is described and newly determined DNA sequences of the cytochrome b gene confirm that G. tasifotsy is genetically highly divergent from all other species of Guibamantis. Expand
