*The ranoid family Pyxicephalidae is an endemic group of African frogs, with the majority of its diversity concentrated in South Africa. Here we present the first molecular phylogeny that includes as many as nine of the ten pyxicephalid genera, omitting only Nothophryne, based on four nuclear gene fragments and one mitochondrial gene fragment. This study corroborates the basal placement of Pyxicephalus and Aubria, and the sister group placement of Natalobatrachus and Arthroleptella, which were… CONTINUE READING
