The tadpole of Hypsiboas latistriatus (Caramaschi & Cruz, 2004), a species of the Hypsiboas polytaenius (Cope, 1870) clade (Amphibia, Anura, Hylidae)



The tadpole of Hypsiboas latistriatus (Caramaschi & Cruz, 2004), a species of the Hypsiboas polytaenius (Cope, 1870) clade (Amphibia, Anura, Hylidae)



Zootaxa. 23 July; 1531: 25-37



Herein we describe the tadpole of Hypsiboas latistriatus from its type-locality and an adjacent, higher elevation pond. The tadpole is similar to the known tadpoles of other species of the H. pulchellus group. The tadpoles of H. latistriatus can be distinguished from other species group tadpoles by their oral formula 2(1,2)/ 3(1) allied with a rounded lateral profile of the tail fins, instead of taper. The overall morphology is congruent with bentonic tadpoles. The tadpoles of H. latistriatus are usually found in Highland grass fields above 2000 m.a.s.l. in clear slow-flowing water bodies. Almost all tadpoles used in this study presented highly whitened mouthparts suggesting the presence of the fungal pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis.
