A New Species Of Eleutherocadtylus (Anura: Leptodactylidae) From The Eastern Andes Of Central Peru With Comments On Central Peruvian Eleutherodactylus, Edgar Lehr, Mikael Lundberg, Cesar Aguilar, Rudolf Von May

Edgar Lehr

A new species of the Eleutherodactylus nigrovittatus Group is described from five localities, at elevations of 1800-2760 m in cloud forests in the Cordillera Oriental in central Peru (Distrito de Paucartambo, Departamento de Pasco). The new species is assigned to the Eleutherodactylus nigrovittatus Group, and differs from all described species therein by having a combination of smooth skin on the venter, undilated discs on the digits, Finger I and Finger II of variable length (slightly shorter, slightly longer or of equal length), Toe III and Toe V of variable length (slightly shorter, slightly longer or of equal length), and a ...

A New Species Of Glass Frog (Centrolenidae: Cochranella Ocellata Group) From Central Peru, Edgar Lehr, Juan Guayasamin, Daniel Rodriguez, Cesar Aguilar

Edgar Lehr

We describe a new species of Cochranella from the Cordillera de Carpish, Departmento Huánuco, Peru. The new species is placed in the Cochranella ocellata group and can be distinguished from all other species of Cochranella by having: (1) small white and dark purple spots on the dorsum; (2) a snout slightly protruding to truncate in lateral aspect; (3) and basal webbing between Fingers III and IV.


Taxomic Status Of Some Species Of Peruvian Phrynopus (Anura: Leptodactylidae), With The Description Of A New Species From The Andes Of Southern Peru, Edgar Lehr Dec 2005

Taxomic Status Of Some Species Of Peruvian Phrynopus (Anura: Leptodactylidae), With The Description Of A New Species From The Andes Of Southern Peru, Edgar Lehr

Edgar Lehr

Based on external morphological and osteological characters, Phrynopus fallaciosus and Phrynopus flavomaculatus are placed in the Eleutherodactylus nigrovittatus Group, and the latter is reported for the first time in Peru (Departmento de Piura). Based on external morphological characters, Phrynopus laplacai is considered to be a junior synonym of P. wettsteini. The type locality of P. wettsteini in Peru is considered as doubtful, and the distribution of the species seems to be restricted to Bolivia. Based on external and internal morphological characters, including comparatively large testes, Phrynopus spectabilis is placed in the synonymy of Pleurodema marmorata. Males of several species of ...

A New Species Of Marsupial Frog (Anura: Hylidae:Gastrotheca) From The Amazonian Slopes Of The Cordillera Oriental In Peru, Edgar Lehr, William Duellman, Linda Trueb

Edgar Lehr

A New species of marsupial frog, Gastrotheca, with prominent cranial crests is described from humid montane forest on the eastern slopes of the Andes in Departmento de Pasco, Peru. The frog ahs an exceedingly robust cranium that most closely resembles that of G. cornuta; however, the cranial crests of G. cornuta are less well developed, and less obvious externally, than those of the new taxon. Within the genus Gastrotheca, one of the most variable parts of the skull is the squamosal, which has a variety of articular arrangements with the maxilla, the pterygoid, and in some taxa, the frontoparietal. In ...
