Phylogenetics relationships between ftogs of the leptodactylid genus Pseudopaludicola are analyzed using both osteological and external characters. Some species of Physalaemus (eleven) are included in the analysis with Pseudopaludicola. Rooting with Leptodactylus or with any species of Physalaemus the monophyly ofthe genus is maintained. Three different trees for Pseudopaludicola were obtained, their strict consensus is: (temetzi mineira (saltica falcipes) (mystacalis (pusilla (boliviana (ceratophyes /lanera))). According to Lynch (1989) the pusilla group is monophyletic, but the internal arrangement among its species is different in this analysis.
