Abstract The known diversity of dart-poison frog species has grown from 70 in the 1960s to 247 at present, with no sign that the discovery of new species will wane in the foreseeable future. Although this growth in knowledge of the diversity of this group has been accompanied by detailed investigations of many aspects of the biology of dendrobatids, their phylogenetic relationships remain poorly understood. This study was designed to test hypotheses of dendrobatid diversification by combining… 
Phylogenetic Systematics of Dart-Poison Frogs and Their Relatives Revisited (Anura: Dendrobatoidea)
TLDR
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.
Mitochondrial paraphyly in a polymorphic poison frog species (Dendrobatidae; D. pumilio).
Revision of the characters of Centrolenidae (Amphibia: Anura: Athesphatanura), with comments on its taxonomy and the description of new taxa of glassfrogs
TLDR
This work defines and analyzes the 23 characters that are useful, in combination, in diagnosing centrolenid species, and provides a reference for the use of future workers.
Phylogenomic Reconstruction of the Neotropical Poison Frogs (Dendrobatidae) and Their Conservation
TLDR
This study provides the first phylogenomic reconstruction of Dendrobatidae with genome-wide nuclear markers known as ultraconserved elements, and describes how the evolutionary history and geographic distributions of the 285 poison frog species impact their conservation status.
Phylogenetic relationships of a Patagonian frog radiation, the Alsodes + Eupsophus clade (Anura: Alsodidae), with comments on the supposed paraphyly of Eupsophus
TLDR
The phylogenetic pattern recovered for Alsodes and Eupsophus suggests a trans‐ Andean origin and diversification of the group, with multiple, independent ingressions over cis‐Andean regions.
Phylogenetic relationships and systematics of the 1 Amazonian poison frog genus Ameerega using 2 ultraconserved genomic elements 3 4
TLDR
The utility of phylogenomic data is underscored in improving the understanding of the phylogeny of understudied clades and making novel inferences about their evolution, as this study underscores the utility of sequence capture techniques and phylogenetic methods.
Biology and captive husbandry of Andinobates geminisae, a critically endangered dart frog
TLDR
It is found that the tadpoles of both species are morphologically indistinguishable from congeneric species and that their morphologies are consistent with existing hypotheses on their systematics and evolution.
A New Nurse Frog (Allobates, Aromobatidae) with a Cricket-Like Advertisement Call from Eastern Amazonia
TLDR
The Middle Tapajós River region is consolidated as having one of the highest alpha diversities for the genus Allobates in Amazonia and the putative drivers generating and maintaining the distinctiveness of the new species are discussed.

The phylogenetic position of the dart-poison frogs (Dendrobatidae) among anurans: an examination of the competing hypotheses and their characters
TLDR
The dendrobatids are hypothesized to be derived from within either the Leptodactylidae or the Ranidae, which are classified in the superfamilies Bufonoidea and Ranoidea, respectively, and those that support the ranid hypothesis include round sacral diapses and the presence of bursa angularis oris.
The evolution of myrmecophagy and its correlates in poison frogs (Family Dendrobatidae)
TLDR
Diet, and the subsequent evolution of uptake systems for alkaloids, may be the primary character that led to the development of toxic skin and permitted aposematism, leading to radiation of poisonous species.
THE AMPHIBIAN TREE OF LIFE
TLDR
A new taxonomy of living amphibians is proposed to correct the deficiencies of the old one, based on the largest phylogenetic analysis of living Amphibia so far accomplished, and many subsidiary taxa are demonstrated to be nonmonophyletic.
Phylogenetic relationships of bufonid frogs and tests of alternate macroevolutionary hypotheses characterizing their radiation
TLDR
To examine phylogenetic relationships within Bufonidae and test these alternate hypotheses, DNA sequence data were obtained from four genes, three mitochondrial and one nuclear, from populations throughout the geographic and taxonomic breadth of the family.
Phylogeny and classification of poison frogs (Amphibia: dendrobatidae), based on mitochondrial 16S and 12S ribosomal RNA gene sequences.
TLDR
An analysis of partial sequences of the 16S ribosomal rRNA gene of 20 poison frog species (Dendrobatidae) confirmed their phylogenetic relationships to bufonid and leptodactylid frogs and supported monophyly of the genus Phyllobates but indicated paraphyly of Epipedobates and Colostethus.
Phylogenetic systematics and biogeography of the poison frogs: evidence from mitochondrial DNA sequences
Regions of the mitochondrial genome were sequenced and analysed in representative species of poison frogs, in order to investigate phylogenetic relationships within the family Dendrobatidae.
Albumin Evolution in Tropical Poison Frogs (Dendrobatidae): A Preliminary Report
TLDR
A study of albumin evolution was initiated in order to help elucidate phylogenetic lineages within the family Dendrobatidae and to estimate their time of arrival in Central America.
Phylogenetics of the lizard genus Tropidurus (Squamata: Tropiduridae: Tropidurinae): direct optimization, descriptive efficiency, and sensitivity analysis of congruence between molecular data and morphology.
TLDR
A sensitivity analysis demonstrated that equal weighting of indels, transitions, transversions, and morphological change provided the most congruent solution between the molecular and the morphological data partitions.
THE EVOLUTION OF FEMALE PARENTAL CARE IN POISON FROGS OF THE GENUS DENDROBATES : EVIDENCE FROM MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCES
TLDR
Mapping of parental care behaviors on the phylogenetic tree derived from the molecular analysis suggests that female-only care has evolved once within Dendrobates, after passing through a biparental stage involving male egg attendance and female tadpole transport and feeding.
Convergent evolution of aposematic coloration in Neotropical poison frogs: a molecular phylogenetic perspective
TLDR
It is relevant that the type species of Minyobates resulted as the sister group of the genus Dendrobates, and that species of Mannophryne and Nephelobates formed monophyletic clades, corroborating the validity of these genera.
