Abstract

HYLA PHYLLOGNATHA (NCN). ECUADOR: PROVINCIA DE ZAMORA-CHINCHIPE: Numbami and Romerillos Bajo, Jamboe River basin, Podocarpus National Park (ca. 04º14’S, 78º56’W, 1500–1700 m). 28–30 April 1999. F. Nogales and D. Almeida. Universidad San Francisco de Quito/Fund. Herpetológica Orcés, Quito (FHGO-USFQ 2346, 2434). Verified by Jean-Marc Touzet. Previously known along the Amazonian slopes of the Andes and associated ranges in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru (Duellman 1972. Occ. Pap. Mus. Nat. Hist. Univ. Kansas 11: 1-31; Ruiz-Carranza and Lynch 1982. Caldasia XIII [64]: 647-671; Frost 2002 Amphibian Species of the World. V2.21 [15 July 2002] <http://research.amnh.org/herpetology/amphibia/index.html> [Accessed: 19 July 2004]). There is a gap of ca. 500 km between the Ecuadorian records in the provinces of Sucumbíos, Napo, Pastaza, Tungurahua, and Morona-Santiago and the Peruvian records in the departments of San Martín, Ucayali, Cusco, Pasco and Junín (Duellman, op. cit.; Lehr 2001. Herpetol. Rev. 32:130-132). Specimens reported herein constitute the first locality within the province of Zamora-Chinchipe, partially filling the gap between Ecuadorian and Peruvian records. This locality is the westernmost record of the species, extending its range ca. 230 km SSW from the nearest locality in the province of Morona-Santiago (Macas; Duellman, op. cit.).
