Overview

Brief Summary

The genus Leptodactylus consists of more than 70 species of frogs that occur in South and Central America from Texas, USA to Peru west of the Andes, throughout most of South America east of the Andes to mid-Argentina, and in the Greater and Lesser Antilles.  An excellent source of more information including photos, data, occurence maps, research, taxonomy and phylogeny for this diverse group of frogs can be found at The Information Bank for Leptodactylus frogs (http://chalk.richmond.edu/leptodactylus/index.html), developed by Rafael O. de Sá and W. Ronald Heyer.

Leptodactylus

Leptodactylus is a genus of leptodactylid frogs.[1] It includes the species commonly called ditch frogs or white-lipped frogs.[2] It is very similar to Physalaemus, a close relative, and indeed the recently described Leptodactylus lauramiriamae is in some aspects intermediate between them.[3] The name means ‘slender finger’, from lepto- (‘thin, delicate’) and the Greek dactylos (δάκτυλος, ‘finger, toe’).[4]
