Ecological niche models (ENM) for the sampled sister-species pairs, and new species described in this study. The Minimum Training Presence (MTP) threshold was used to validate the models; over-predicted areas east of the Andes are not shown. (PDF)

Comparative phylogeography allow us to understand how shared historical circumstances have shaped the formation of lineages, by examining a broad spectrum of co-distributed populations of different taxa. However, these types of studies are scarce in the Neotropics, a region that is characterized by high diversity, complex geology, and poorly unders...
List of PCR and sequencing primers and their respective PCR conditions used in this study. All PCR protocols included an initial 3-min step at 94°C and a final extension of 10 min at 72°C. (DOCX)
Locality data for species included in this study. In general, localities are given as transcribed from the literature, museum records, Tropical Herping photographic database or HerpNET. Coordinates represent georeferencing attempts from gazetteers under standard guidelines, though some variation from the exact collecting locality will inevitably be...


... Amphibians form a diverse group regarding ecophysiological restrictions (Bovo et al., 2018), with species presenting different responses to climate change (Blaustein et al., 2010;Miller et al., 2018;Alan Pounds et al., 2006). They are also recognized for their site fidelity, frequently presenting clear effects of geological changes on their genetic structure, making some authors questions the existence of widespread amphibians in the Neotropics (Arteaga et al., 2016;Beddek et al., 2018;Zeh et al., 2003). Some phylogeographic studies demonstrated the importance of past climatic change and the southern route in the diversification of forest amphibians in South America (Fouquet et al., 2012a;Fouquet et al., 2012b). ...
