Reproduction in macrogenioglottus alipioi anura leptodactylidae

Reproduction in macrogenioglottus alipioi anura leptodactylidae

Contributions in Science (Los Angeles) (298): 1-9

Mating behavior, mating call and larval morphology are described for M. alipioi. The mating behavior is conducted in a way that would be advantageous in a species in which the number of eggs oviposited per female is great but the number of ovipositing females per pond is small. Feeding behavior is modified for the capture of slow moving prey such as snails and earthworms. The sonogram of the mating call of M. alipioi is similar to that of Odontophrynus americanus. The tadpoles of Macrogenioglottus are similar to those of Odontophrynus, having the same tooth row formula and similar arrangement of labial papillae. They differ in the position of the spiracle and the vent. A review of the taxonomic history of M. alipioi combined with new data suggests a close relationship between Macrogenioglottus and Odontophrynus.
