Life history and ecology of the hylid frog Osteocephalus taurinus. [Lawrence. Kan.] (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: William E Duellman.

Life History, Abundance, Activity, and Special Behaviors The species is arboreal and nocturnal, and is found in primary and secondary forests, usually on trunks and branches.

Males call, often in groups, from low vegetation or immersed in small water bodies. The Manaus slender-legged tree frog (Osteocephalus taurinus) is a species of frog in the family Hylidae found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, moist savanna, rivers, intermittent freshwater marshes, and canals and ditches.

However, hatching within the parent (the criterion of ovoviviparity) is relatively rare and larvae generally emerge only after deposition. Viviparity is characterized by the nutritional dependency of the unencapsulated larva upon the parent, but in. DUELLMAN, W.E.

[ Links ] FORMANOWICZ, Treefrogs have slender bodies and legs, long toes, and sticky toe pads that help them climb in trees and cling to branches and leaves. Treefrogs have extra cartilage between the last two bones of each toe that makes their toes more flexible.

Treefrogs come in a variety of sizes and colors.

Most species live in trees, but there are some species that spend most of their time on the ground. Among egg‐brooding hylid frogs there is much interspecific variation in the degree of development of the young at hatching. In certain species of Gastrotheca the eggs hatch into free‐living tadpoles, whereas in others (and in the genera Amphignathodon, Cryptobatrachus, Stefania and Hemiphractus) the eggs hatch directly into examined the oral anatomy of tadpoles and embryos of Osteocephalus vilarsi (Melin, ) is an Amazonian treefrog species known for over 75 years from its holotype only.

Due to a lack of published data on its morphological diagnostic characters and their variations, as well as the absence of molecular, acoustic and ecological data supporting its identity, a highly dynamic taxonomic history has led this species to be confused and even synonymised.

In this first ever detailed modern accounting, based on voucher specimens, we document the presence of species of amphibians and reptiles in the country; amphibians, reptiles. Of these, we present species accounts for species and color photographs of about 62% (Plates 1–40). At the rate that new species are being described and.

study area the only hylid similar in size and color to H. boans is Osteocephalus taurinus (Zimmerman & Ro-drigues, ) and the later can be easily distinguished by a golden iris with radiating lines (Lima et al., ).

The identification of H. angulatus was based on the district banded dorsal color pattern as Helicops hagmanni, the only. The tadpole of Aparasphenodon brunoi is described and illustrated for the first time (external morphology and internal oral features) from Maricá, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Characters of this tadpole include: body representing 30% of total length; eyes lateral; spiracle single, sinistral, with opening directed upward and backward; anal tube median; dorsal fin originating at the mid.

Diversification processes acting across geographically continuous populations have been rarely documented in Amazonia, because of the lack of fine-scale sampling over extensive areas. We aimed to determine the geographic effects of an environmental transition zone and large rivers on the intraspecific population structure of the Manaus slender-legged tree frog (Osteocephalus taurinus).

In: Occasional Papers of the Museum of Natural History, vol University of Kansas, pp 1– The map tree frog (Hypsiboas geographicus) is a species of frog in the family Hylidae found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, moist savanna, subtropical or tropical seasonally wet or flooded lowland grassland.

A golden iris with black reticulations further distinguishes Osteocephalus germani from Osteocephalus deridens, Osteocephalus oophagus, Osteocephalus planiceps, and Osteocephalus taurinus which have bronze to golden irises with black lines radiating from the pupil; iris coloration also differs in Osteocephalus carri, Osteocephalus festae.

Hylid frogs are not among those species commonly eaten by Europeans and North Americans, but many indigenous peoples in the American tropics and in the Australo-Papuan region catch and eat a variety of larger hylids, especially Hyla boans and Osteocephalus taurinus in the Americas and Nyctimystes in.

Systematic review of the frog family Hylidae, with special reference to Hylinae: phylogenetic analysis and taxonomic revision. The first goal of this paper is to review the current state of hylid systematics. We focus on the very large subfamily Hylinae ( species), evaluate the monophyly of named taxa, and examine the evidential basis.
