A New Species of the Scinax ruber Clade (Anura, Hylidae) from the Espinhaço Range, Northeastern Brazil

Abstract:  A new species belonging to the Scinax ruber clade, morphologically similar to S. cabralensis and S. rupestris, is described from the Municipality of Miguel Calmon, State of Bahia,

A New Species of Glassfrog Genus Vitreorana (Anura, Centrolenidae) from the Cerrado Domain, Southeastern Brazil

Morphological and molecular data from one nuclear gene (proopiomelanocortin) show that the new species belongs to the genus Vitreorana, with a strong support of posterior probability of Bayesian inference.

A new species of Rock-Dwelling Scinax Wagler (Anura: Hylidae) from Chapada dos Veadeiros, Central Brazil.

A new species of the Scinax ruber clade is described from Chapada dos Veadeiros region, Central Brazil, using temporary creeks in rock meadows above 1,000 m a.s.l. and males calls from rock outcrops.

Microhabitat use and spatial distribution in Picado's Bromeliad Treefrog, Isthmohyla picadoi (Anura, Hylidae)

A amplitude de variacao do comprimento rostro-cloacal e do peso corporeo dessa populacao foi muito maior do que aquela registrada em estudos anteriores com essa especie.

Revision of the Boophis majori group (Amphibia: Mantellidae) from Madagascar, with descriptions of five new species

Morphological differentiation within the B. majori group is low, although some species can be distinguished by characters such as snout–vent length, relative tympanum size, or coloration, and the most reliable character for species identification are advertisement calls which are strikingly different between most species of the group.

On the occurrence of Scinax kennedyi (Pyburn, 1973) (Anura, Hylidae) in the state of Roraima, northern Brazil

The present study demonstrates the occurrence of S. kennedyi in Brazil, extending its distribution ca. 1,120 km east by south from its type locality, and ca.—844 kmEast-southeast from its easternmost previous record.

Review of the genus Cruziohyla (Anura: Phyllomedusidae), with description of a new species.

Phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequences of the 16S rRNA gene confirms the new species having equal minimum 6.2% genetic divergence from both true C. calcarifer and Cruziohyla craspedopus.

Phylogenetic systematics of egg-brooding frogs (Anura: Hemiphractidae) and the evolution of direct development.

The results support the most recent common ancestor of hemiphractids as a direct-developer, and propose a revised taxonomy concordant with the optimal topologies.

Análise filogenética do grupo de Dendropsophus decipiens (Lutz, 1925) (Amphibia: Anura: Hylidae)

A phylogenetic analysis using a morphological approach and a description of the tadpole of D. haddadi is provided, it is observed that the differences refers to the unique tad pole of the former D. decipiens and D. microcephalus groups.

The Amphibians and Reptiles of Costa Rica, A Herpetofauna between Two Continents, between Two Seas.

Costa Rica, het paradijs voor de onderzoeker en eco-toerist. De soortenrijke heepetafauna is voor ons (ama­ teur)herpetologen een gegronde reden om eens een bezoek te brengen aan dit schitterende

The definition of the middle american clade of Eleutherodactylus based on jaw musculature (Amphibia: Leptodactylidae)

The variations in the relationships of the m. adductor mandibulae and the mandibular ramus of the trigeminal nerve are reviewed for eleutherodactyline frogs in particular and "leptodactyloids" in

The Origins and History of the Central American Herpetofauna

The herpetofauna of the Guatemalan Plateau, with special reference to its distribution on the southwestern highlands, and the environment of the Central American cold-blooded vertebrate fauna, 1966.

Phylogenetic relationships among marsupial frog genera (Anura: Hylidae: Hemiphractinae) based on evidence from morphology and natural history

The phylogenetic relationships of genera of hemiphractine hylid frogs (Marsupial Treefrogs) are reassessed and the evolution of several distinctive characters within this group is discussed using parsimony analysis.

The Enigma of the Central American Herpetofauna: Dispersals or Vicariance?

Frogs of the Eleutherodactylus biporcatus Group (Leptodactylidae) of Central America and Northern South America, Including Rediscovered, Resurrected, and New Taxa

Preliminary data on karyotypes, as well as morphological differences, cast doubt on the closeness of E. biporcatus to the other species studied, and the monophyly of the “biporcatus group” therefore remains to be tested.
