Caracterización de Hyla guentheri Boulenger 1886 (Amphibia, Anura, Hylidae)

Cuadernos de Herpetología 11 (1-2): 13-20, 1997

Abstract

Analysis of the holotype of H. guentheri indicates that it is a valid species and different from Hyla pulchella. The identity of the holotype is verified and other specimens incorrectly assigned to the type series of this species are rejected as syntypes. At present H. guentheri is known from the Brazilian States of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catharina. The phylogenetic relationships of this species are not clear and depend on a formal definition of the polytaenia and pulchella groups.

Key words:

Amphibia; Anura; Hylidae; Hyla; H. guentheri
