Comprehensive Description

    Phyllodytes
    provided by wikipedia

    Phyllodytes is a genus of frogs (heart-tongued frogs) in the family Hylidae. It is endemic to eastern Brazil.[1]

    Taxonomy

    Based on genetic evidence, genus Phytotriades was erected in 2009 to remedy polyphyly of Phyllodytes as then defined.[2][3] It remains to be elucidated which Phyllodytes species, apart from Phytotriades (=Phyllodytes) auratus, the type species of the genus Phytotriades, might belong to Phytotriades instead of Phyllodytes.[3] With Phytotriades auratus from Trinidad and Venezuela placed in its own genus, the remaining Phyllodytes species are all endemic to Brazil.[1][4]

    Description

    These are small arboreal frogs which live and breed exclusively on epiphytic bromeliad plants. They have large odontoids ("fangs") on the dentaries.[2][5] Male Phyllodytes do vocalize, in contrast to Phytotriades.[2]

    This genus includes 12 species:[1]

    AmphibiaWeb continues to include Phytotriades auratus in this genus.[6]
