The evolutionary history of the Dendrobatidae, the charismatic Neotropical poison frog family, remains in flux, even after a half-century of intensive research. Understanding the evolutionary relationships between dendrobatid genera and the larger-order groups within Dendrobatidae is critical for making accurate assessments of all aspects of their biology and by: 4. anura; dendrobatidae; colostethus; agilis; colombia; valle del cauca; ; a e smalley & k adler; ntd in field book no p Edwards, S.

  Frogs are immediately associated to their conspicuous vocalizations emitted during the breeding season. Therefore, many scientists were inspired to study their acoustic communication. Nowadays, many types of calls are described and we felt the need of reviewing the terminology currently and historically applied. As a result, we proposed the classification of Cited by:   reproduction of espécies, como os Coloste- Some frog species, such as thethus da RFAD, são, provavelmente, Colostethus species in Reservaanuais, e os adultos somente são Ducke, are essentially annual, andencontrados na população por um adults are only found in theperíodo limitado de tempo.

This species is most similar to C. mcdiarmidi Reynolds and Foster,but differs in amount of toe webbing, ventral coloration, snout-vent length, dorsal coloration, shank length, and tympanum diameter. Taxonomy. Formerly, the genus Colostethus was found to be "rampantly nonmonophyletic" in the taxonomic revision of poison dart frogs published in Before the revision, it had species, but this was reduced to 18 species, after species of the former Colostethus were distributed among eight genera in two families, that is, in Dendrobatidae and in the newly established Class: Amphibia.
