Ischnocnema

Ischnocnema is a genus of frogs from eastern Brazil and north-eastern Argentina.[1][2][3] They comprise the former Eleutherodactylus from this region,[4] but they are closer to Brachycephalus than the "true" Eleutherodactylus. Consequently, they are now placed in their own genus Ischnocnema in the family Brachycephalidae.[1][2][3]
