Aplastodiscus albosignatus
Bocaina TreeFrog, perereca-verde
family: Hylidae
subfamily: Hylinae
Taxonomic Notes: Berneck, Haddad,Lyra, Cruz and Faivovich [2016 Mol Phylog Evolution 97:213-223] show that topotypic specimens of Aplastodiscus albosignatus and Aplastodiscus callipygius are almost identical in studied DNA sequences and the taxa are inter-nested in phylogenetic analysis. The taxa are also morphologically similar. Accordingly, A. callipygius is treated as a junior synonym of A. albosignathus. AmphibiaWeb has a species account for A. albosignatus written in English and another for A. callypigius written in Portuguese. We have photographs attributed to both putative taxa. Everything is now presented as A. albosignatus, but readers should be aware of the need to revise the species accounts. AmphibiaWeb welcomes such a revision, in either English and Portuguese, or preferably both.
