Descriptions of Two Species of Frogs, Genus Ptychohyla

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Field studies on hylid frogs in southern México and northern Central America have resulted in the collection of numerous specimens of Ptychohyla, a genus of hylid frogs heretofore poorly represented in museum collections. Experience with the living frogs in their natural habitats has been helpful in defining the species and in formulating ideas concerning their relationships. Taylor (1944) proposed the generic name Ptychohyla for a new species of frog, Ptychohyla adipoventris [= Ptychohyla leonhard-schultzei (Ahl)—fide Duellman, 1960] from Agua del Obispo, Guerrero. Taylor defined the genus as having large ventrolateral glands and horny nuptial spines in males. Stuart (1954:169) discussed the generic characters and pointed out that both the ventrolateral glands and horny nuptial spines were seasonal in their development, being found only in breeding males.
